Santos On Fire

by Julia Griffin

“George Santos Doubles Down on Making AR-15 the ‘National Gun’ of the U.S…
[Santos says:] “We have national everything, why not have a national gun? It saves lives
on a daily basis, and it’s not reported.”

At Daily Basis U, the Dean
Devotedly contrives
To honor our AR-15
For saving all those lives.

This year alone, how much we owe
This patriotic gun!
Without it, seven schools or so
Would—what would they have done?
