ISN’T IT A PITY?

This post speaks to the shameful failure of congress to enact even modest gun control legislation supported by a large majority of Americans.

ISN’T IT A PITY?
(To tune of, Isn’t it a Pity?” by George & Ira Gershwin)

 Here we are again
A task undone
Still any fool
Can buy a gun
Isn’t it a pity, that we can’t vote today?

 Join the NRA
They’re not ashamed
If he’s unarmed
The victim’s blamed
Isn’t it pity, that we can’t vote today?

To think of all those sessions wasted
All that cajoling
Telephoning, polling
The turkey’s basted
By the gun lobby
And us? We’re just a hobby.

 Send a message clear
Next time we vote
We have the cure
The antidote
But, isn’t it a pity, that we can’t vote today?
