Would that nations would go through all of these steps first before resorting to the final solution. It's surprising how many disagreements can be sorted out amicably with words, with a social drink, with a playful shove or in the stylised format of the sports arena. Nicely written.

    I couldn't agree more, Tony, and I appreciate your understanding of the conceit of the poem. Cheers, my friend.

Well, you certainly don't come out against guns - which is fine with me. I like the pistol - looks well-worn.

Love the rhyming and the simplicity of your words. My kind of poetry.

It is clear to me what you pretend to be saying here in your poem, and how you chose to say it. You show the evolution of the absurdity of the step by step process of violence, starting from a minor incident/action, to climaxing into the ultimate (the weapon-pistols.)It is absurd how man, without nearly being aware, builds himself into a frenzy enough to kill. Your acbd rhyme scheme worked well, and meters came off well, too.

Great rhyming throughout. It doesn't get in the way of the poem. Actually, it adds to it. There's so many rhymesters just rhyming. Yours is different. The message is awesome. Love the ending verse! Les

Aside from the fact that there is great tongue-in-cheek satire in the content of this poem, it is meticulously written for maximum effect. The meter and rhyme of the quatrains are perfect and zip the poem right along as it escalates (just like the disagreements it portrays). I think you have a winner here, and you didn't even enter it in a contest! Love reading it.

Assassination weapons.... you going Africa? (That's a joke... haha).

Good poetic form. Good flow of rhythm and rhymes. Good visual imagery. Expressive. Good work. And just to let you know... Colt and Smith & Wesson don't advertise guns anymore.

    Ha! Thanks, Sunni. I think I'll pass. It's the Wild West out there. Many thanks, and yes, I was aware of the advertising changes.

LOL Leave it to a man to fun something humorous with a gun. I love it. Your profile picture and the guns makes you the modern American cowboy. I thought the poem rhymed really well and didn't sound forced. And the rhythm was very musical. Great job, my new poet friend.

No, I totally understood the irony of it. The rhyming was perfect, and once again I'm in awe of your ability to write in iambic pentameter and still create a relevant, meaningful poem that addresses an important issue in social relations.

Ha! There may be here in some quarters, but I would expect a lifetime membership in the NRA in the mail. Ted Nugent's rockin' version of this is goin' viral as we speak!! A great issue to distract me from searching for Randy Newman seeking an apology for insulting me and my fellow "short people". Great piece. (pun intended) mikey
