    I wrote a few lines the other night, let's say I was inspired. Figured the high roaders might appreciate it more than anyone else. Tell me what you think. I'm looking forward to comments/criticism/suggestions.

    -Thanks!



    When I wake in deepest night
    Find my pistol and my light
    Check the chamber see the brass
    Eyes on front sight center mass
    Easy steps I softly creep
    Find what woke me from my sleep
    Head on swivel open eyes
    Round the corners slice the pie
    Some folks ask about my gun
    “Why not just call nine-one-one?â€
    I call back without a grin
    “Self defense is not a sinâ€
    Sure I’ll call up Johnny Law
    Gladly tell him what I saw
    But he doesn’t have the time
    To stop every single crime
    ‘Til he does you will see me
    With my trusty BHP
    Glock or Colt or Smith and Wess
    Find the one that suits you best
    Mag or nine or forty-five
    All are fine for saving lives
    So I clear my humble home
    Flashlight, pistol, and cell phone
    Set back now in their right place
    Worried look soon leaves my face
    For a breath I wonder why
    Some folks do not act as I
    Shrug my shoulders, start to sleep
    Counting all those blissful sheep

    The downside

    Down the stairs I hear a crash
    Grab my handy gat and flash
    See a shadow, aim at that,
    Holy crud, I shot the cat!

    Of the moral I am sure
    In two words, it is: Rule Four.

    Reminds me of Hilaire Belloc's famous lines about fighting between the British Empire and native tribes:

    Can you imagine calling out the cops to find that your cat knocked over a lamp? :D

    On the other hand, I ain't goin' down those stairs empty handed!

    I love my Israeli monocular, so solid it doubles as a rock if I need to hit someone with it.:evil:

    I woke to a thump in the night
    I grabbed my CZ and Streamlight
    My house I did clear
    and then drank a beer
    and I then went out like a light

    ha HA!!! an RKBA limerick.

    There once was a man in the west
    Who kept guns so that he might rest
    in his house no one snuck
    or out would run their luck
    As the man put two in their chest

    ooh, theres another (although not perfect limerick form)

    Not much for poetry, but that was excellent John. I have printed it out and with your permission I will show it around at the next ConTact match....I'm sure it will be appreciated.

    There was an attorney named Linus
    Who prosecuted felonies heinous.
    Whilst working a shooting
    Through the boards he went rooting
    And now THR is one minus.

    In short, what you say here COULD come back to bite you. :what:
