Some World Views

To some, gun control is
a firm grip and a steady hand.
A mind made up with resolution.
A good aim, or a clean sweep.

For some life is in a besieged city.
Talking on Skype to neighbours and
friends far away. They joke as bombs
fall. They will move the dead later.

For one percent of the world population
Money is no object, hunger never a thought.
Their only fear is death, tax no problem,
And should they buy another mansion?
