GOD MADE THE GUN

God made a gun, and said,
“If you use this you will kill
Something or somebody dead,
For revenge or for thrill.”
They went about their killing
Until the world was at war,
Fought at first by the willing
Until the devastation they saw.
But though they all cried for peace
they would not sacrifice the gun,
thus the wars, they increase
and will never be done…
for the Lord made the gun
that wars might be won.
