‘Bang! Bang!’ is a protest poem about gun crime in America.
Hope you enjoy (as much as one can)!

Bang! Bang!

Bang! Bang!
cries America.
Bang! Bang!
America cries.
Bang! Bang!
cries America,
prayers to God,
guns to sky.
Bang! Bang!
cries America,
protect me
from others’
protection.
Bang! Bang!
cries America,
not the guns,
another
deflection.
Bang! Bang!
cries America,
guns in hands,
lust in eyes.
Bang! Bang!
cries America.
Bang! Bang!
America cries.
Bang! Bang!
cries America,
it’s not the gun
that kills.
Bang! Bang!
cries America,
aim their scopes
at the mentally ill.
Bang! Bang!
cries America,
war abroad,
war at home.
Bang! Bang!
cries America,
war on guns
and national pride.
Bang! Bang!
cries America.
Bang! Bang!
America cries.
Another school.
Another shooting.
Bang! Bang!
America cries.
