TACITURNITY AND SILENCE

William H.A. Willbond MSM, CD: Taciturn and SilenceQuietly I leaned against the tree
Whilst those soldiers slowly walked by me
I smelled the smoke of their cigarettes
As they moved on past my camo nets

I use these tactics whilst hunting deer
With my camera, in the fall of the year
If one keeps quiet and moves real slow
You can get a photo of a nice fat doe

I no longer go a field with gun
A camera now is a bit more fun
Quiet in the bush, that is good for my soul
Though it cost a Billion for gun control

I try to be quiet and shut my mouth
About all the guns they have down south
Their drive by shootings and murders galore
Are the things Canadians really deplore

I lay here quietly in the beaver hay
And wait for deer to pass my way
I snap the picture. I get the heart lung shot
No blood is spilled now, not even a drop!
