A Lost World

x

I took my .22,

Shot at paper targets

I wasn’t very good

There were

I’m sure

Excuses

x

I could not shoot Bambi

There are those who could

And use the food

At home or to give

To other,

Hungry people

x

A bullet from a distance

What might Cain

Have devised?

With such Indiscretion

And the safety off,

He might have gone

After Seth

x

Then where would we be

For progeny

With only wives surviving, were

They out of range?

x

They might retrieve

The guns

Then learn to shoot for life,

Maybe instructed by

An angel

Out of Eden

x

An imagined state

Doomed,

We’d think

Excepting life to find a way
