I penned this scathing "Independence Day" rock song right after hearing about another U.S. mass shooting, in the Annapolis, Md. newsroom. I've been there, it's such a cool town

ANOTHER GREAT AMERICAN DEATH ORGY

Oh goody, oh Glory
well, well, well
what do you know
yet another "Great" American Death Orgy
and yet, "There's a special place in Hell"
for the likes of Justin Trudeau--
"Kill, kill, kill, it gives you such a thrill
they're sick, and always had the will
we give them the ability to kill"
it's great to be an American, isn't it just,
each can have their very own
machine gun rapid fire assault rifle
and a big surplus,
more being manufactored all the time !
it's a wonder we've not all been shot down
in our golden years of childhood, teenhood,
in our prime
at the zenith of physical health
suddenly taken out of oneself
out of the material world
and physical shell
in a sudden burst of loud, bloody violence
tht looks and feels and sounds like a Hell--
children shot to pieces in their schools,
money valued above their lives--
do you think we don't know that?
do you think we are fools?
too late to put the genie back in the
bottle, you say,
with millions of weapons out there
and thousands more being made every day
so gun lovers can really thrive

So you need not worry
that your All American gun fun will ever
be taken away,
but must worry about staying alive
why is it that other lands
can exist lacking guns for all
in everyone's hands?
we sure can't have that here.
you must rush out and easily buy
your own guns, because you
live in fear
because there are so many guns !
"Just gimme some truth"
well, here it is
compared to those other lands
we are uncivilized, too wild,
and uncouth
our government allows all those guns
since the N.R.A. pays and pays
big bucks to the lawmakers
to let them stay
what does it matter that the
lives of our children are violently snatched away?
Let's hear it for the "red, white, and blue"
"red" too often for rivers of blood that flow
"white" too often for white privilege,
"blue" for "blue blooded" billionaires
hogging all the wealth and not wanting
to help, share and give,
but instead wanting more, more, more
and lest we forget the Dr. Strangeloves
avid to send our boys off to lucritive wars
while they prosper and toast each other
gleefully and get to live
so have a great 4th of July
and try to forget all those
victims who suffer and die
this is my Independence Day
protest song outraged,
agonized outcry

I also felt furious about the children torn away from their parents and some even placed in cages

So well written, Pinkie. I felt a little nauseous celebrating yesterday. I feel embarrassed for our country.
