LET IT BE A FILM, NOT REAL,// THAT YOU FLASH A WEAPON OF DEADLY STEEL
Copyright © 2018 by Marvin Cohen

Pointing a gun gives you dominance
of your situation along with prominence,
in a masterful position
to insist with precision
what you require the poor victim to do
in his fearful submission to gun-authorized you.
All you have to do is point
and his will power gets out of joint.
He succumbs with obedience
to your any and every expedience
as your dutiful slave for the occasion
with you holding the total maximum persuasion.
His trembling dislike of you is hidden with evasion.
I hope it's a film, and not in real life
that we're beholding this bout of uneven strife.
As for the outcome, who can tell?
I hope your trigger finger doesn't ring its bell
and send your victim for a spell
of being permanently unwell
if he survives the trauma at all.
What punishment will you befall?
