Why does the gun
Come first for some?
I see a Taser and baton
And Pepper spray – where have they gone?
And does no one teach
Are the lines so blurred?
Where are the words?
No thought for de-escalation
Shouldn’t that be the foundation
To show you care
That you’re aware
Of more than just the power in your hand?
That you understand
There are better ways to make your mark
Than to crush the life from glowing sparksby
