Divine Ammunition

Bitterly Clinging to Guns and Religion.
Helplessly hoping for heroes to come.
Proudly proclaiming their program in pidgin,
tooting their horns as they beat on the drum:
"Jesus says thank Him for your meager smidgin."
Rich get the cake and the proles get the crumb.
Break out the shotguns! Wage war on some wigeon!
Let's show those ducks the true measure of dumb.
