REMEMBER, REMEMBER – LEST WE FORGET
I wrote this too late to “celebrate” Guy Fawkes Day. Anyway, we don’t celebrate it here in Albuquerque, unless it is a bonfire party given by UNM academics.
Remember, remember the 5th of November
Gunpowder, treason and shot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
That was in 1605, but too close to today’s traitorous fires and bombing everywhere for my mind. Too many guns, too. Now they’re arming school security officers, and in NM we are allowed to carry concealed weapons. Ugh, not me thank you. Today local lawyers and legislators were discussing the new law which strengthens background checks when buying guns, so hopefully criminals and unfit people, teenagers, etc., won’t be able to buy guns. New Mexico is top state for violent crime.
I wish everyone could live in peace, not in pieces. I mean, don’t you????
