Same Old Story

How does this happen,
Shooting in Ferguson again?
How does it go down,
Where does the blame begin?

Jobs.
Hope.
Responsibility.
Gun control.

People need jobs to survive.
Not just menial work,
Jobs that let them earn
Enough to give them a chance.

The masses, all of US,
Need to think about OUR duty
To live together,
Forsaking the inane anger build on differences.

Perhaps the time has come
To mandate gun ownership,
Make everyone a pistol packing citizen,
Nah, we already know what people do with guns.

Jobs. Hope. Responsibility. Gun Control.

The premise is simple,
But one year after Michael Brown
And something happens there again?
Easier said than done, I suppose.
