Blinded By The Logical (June 18, 2016)

With bitter irony
Am write this.

Knowing
It will be lost
On most people.

How (mostly white)
Conservative Christians
Have fought
Tooth and nail
Against Planned Parenthood
And abortions.

In arguing:

"That all life is
Precious."

And yet
Opposed any legislation
Reducing access
To any firearms.

Weapons
Whose sole existence
Is to KILL
Targeted people.

Can someone
Please tell me
How these two
Philosophical outlooks
Don't conflict.

For I am
A trans-lesbian Canadian
Who supports
Gun control laws.

Author's note: In the coming week, the United States Senate will be voting on numerous amendments, to its federal gun controls. Like those, aimed at, tightening the loopholes that currently exist, in the automated background software, which allows people, to get firearms, that would never past clearance, in Canada.
