poetry by j matthew waters

for the people

it’s no real surprise I heard him say
and it got me to thinking
whatever could possibly be

firearms made by 3D printers
ones with real-world capabilities
created by ordinary men in their lairs
focused on nothing but themselves

they make ammunition too
and anything you can possibly want
made in america & for america
always for sale at a steep steep discount
taxed by a government allegedly
of the people & by the people
haphazardly for the people

july two thousand twenty-two
