to arm myself. Churches and fear of hell
kept most people in line
and if an area was bad I moved
to a safer neighborhood
trusting the police and armies
to quell disruption and anarchy
but the news suggests a different
reality is upon me.
I must become ever vigilant.
I no longer live in a system
where "live and let live," exists.
When the internet can connect
the disenfranchised guiding them
to a line of thought that prepares
them to die for radical beliefs
giving a will, to do whatever
is necessary to force a change
in the world order.
It is time to prepare a plan
to protect my family and my land
doing what I must, prayer is not enough
don’t want to make a bunker
and hunker down and hide
but I must arm myself doing
what is needed to survive.
