The Outcome

Taken from the book "Gun Talk"

BANG! One shot to the head.
The Outcome – Instant death.

BANG! He had two brothers.
The Outcome – He now has one.

BANG! Mum shot Dad.
The Outcome – A traumatised child going mad.

BANG! He woke up to an unpleasant surprise.
The Outcome – From the waist down paralysed.

BANG! Right place wrong time.
The Outcome – Stray bullet made her blind.

BANG! The bullet entered her belly.
The Outcome – She never saw her baby.

BANG! It was so sad.
The Outcome – He no longer has a Dad.

If people keep on firing guns
There will always be an outcome
Unfortunately it still goes on.

BANG! And On, BANG! And On, BANG! And On.
