Riffing on comments that Big Pharma corrupts more than guns (which are a key to our culture’s core).

All symptoms indicate you might

Benefit from using a firearm.

When dangers cause fright,

My prescription is to arm.

Use only as needed,

Beware of addiction,

Laws must be heeded,

Review the restrictions.

Warning: some patients have proven

that psychotropic and psychedelic drugs

don’t mix well with a firearm regimen —

the combo can create suicidal thugs.

Harmless side effects may include:

Inflated self-confidence,

Desire to break up neighbor’s feuds,

And belief in police incompetence.

Use at your own risk,

Reload as needed,

Enjoy each chance for a frisk,

Live life unimpeded.
