One Nation Under Guns

I have to thank Amanda Gorman for feeding me this line.

It is indeed: One Nation Under Guns
so we tell little heads to hide
(don’t make a sound, don’t cry)
and we tell little feet to run

away from danger, away from anger
away from double standards 
coated in Thoughts and Prayers

runrunrun, little feet, runrunrun
from yet another loaded gun
just don’t take their freedoms
don’t spoil their fun

One Nation Under Guns
under a Red bloodied with power
under this heavy-hearted setting sun

Yes, the sun will rise again tomorrow
just not for everyone
