Of Arms and the Man

Americans now have reflected,

And the gun lobby logic rejected;

Owning large assault arms

Should set off alarms,

And their ownership should be inspected!


La Boheme

A plot synopsis for those listening to the broadcast opera today:


Rudolpho’s in love with Mimi,

And Musetta’s in love with Paree;

The group splits for a while

Though they do reconcile,

But Mimi then succumbs to TB.

Action Needed

The students are demanding more action,

In addressing the gun-toting faction;

Let’s raise the old hex

On full background checks,

The groundswell may this time have traction!
