Bloody Battles*


From an outsider looking in, mostly what I see are the dregs from an antiquated bill of rights – since interpreted – but still  incorrectly adhered to, and staunchly chanted. It doesn’t make sense anymore.

What about the rights of those shot down time and time again?  Why be antagonistic towards gun (control) laws, if you have nothing to hide or bear no ill intent? Any revision of the gun laws (for the better) would not suddenly make impotent the people who legally and (responsibly) own a gun – it would simply ensure that those who should not, become so.

The right to bear arms.  Currently, the only (human) rights being honoured here are those belonging sellers, politicians, associations, criminals, and any other deviant member of civilisation at this time who enjoys the infinite ease of ability to wield a weapon, and despite huge efforts; the huge resistance and culling of which is a sad indictment of our times, it is shocking and absurd that the deciding power always appears to lie within the controlling blood stained hands of the opposition. Why? Why are  we so lacking?

I would like to follow those who have expressed their deepest condolences to the families of those innocent lives lost one night; a night like any other, with so much potential before it was mowed down brutally, before the last dance, before the last song, before the last drink and before the last kiss – yet another tragic manifestation of the world in which we live, and sadly, the like of which we will see again and again and again- no doubt.

– Sleep tight. Your struggles go unrewarded once again, but they are well and truly over now.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.

  1. Excellent! And yes, all the “let’s keep the peace and not say anything upsetting about this” is for the birds, not for human beings that are being gunned down in senseless acts of violence. We don’t need peace and all the niceties about this subject, we need war on it, as if people truly do matter! Great article 🙂
