I tried so hard to find some way to give brightness to this poem but could not, I'm sorry.


A Tragic Lesson to Learn!
“Now Sally you’re not being very kind or nice, you must learn to share.”
“Give your little brother that comb or brush so he can comb his hair.”
“But Mommy it’s mine and besides Bobby’s hair looks just fine.”
“Why can’t he do without or get his own just like I got mine.”
“Sally someday you will learn that it’s better to share than not.”
“For youd have double the toys to play with, which is more than you’ve  got.”
“I don’t care a bit about that Mommy, for I’ve outgrown all his toys.”
“Besides all the toys that Bobby has got, are just for little boys.”
“Okay, but consider the consequences your selfishness might bring.”
“I don’t care about that Mommy I’ll be fine, I don’t need a thing. “
“Sally went off to play not realizing what she might have done.”
“For she just taught her little brother that not sharing could be fun.”
It didn’t take long for her to learn a very tragic lesson in deed.
For Bobby found his daddy’s gun and followed his sister’s lead.
“No, its mine,” he said to her as she tried to take away the gun.
The gun exploded violently and Little Bobby’s life was done.

Oh! So sad as to what happened in the end but a good lesson to be learned here. Guns can kill especially in the wrong hands, like the hands of a minor. Very well written and thanks for sharing Bonnie! :)

So very well stated - your words drive home so many of life's important messages . . . thank you!!

LOve and Hugs,

I can understand the civilians fixation with weapons, soldiers, and those that saw wars don't need weapons around, and if they do, they do like Ed below said a weapong on a locker, its firing-pin in another, and the ammo not even where mother-in-law can find them.
If you have intruders...that old good baseball bat will do, believe me.

Hi Bonnie,this is indeed a sad commentary on the world today.I just dont know how these kids end up with these guns and then accidentally shoot each other or take them to hurt innocent people.Its been going on like this forever and too many kids are dying way too quickly.A very well written poem with a sad ending.By the way,you don't have nothing to apologize about

Reviewed by Ed Matlack
Guns should not be left anywhere anybody can get to them, if so they need to have the firing pin removed or the ammo in a separate place...then these tragedies could not occur...hopefully, Ed

There are two lessons to learn in this. One is sharing, and the other one is for the adults not to keep and firearms in the house where the children can reach it. This is so dangerous, and innocent lives are lost because of the adults' carelessness. Too bad for Bobby!!!

A good message with this poem. Thanks Bonnie!!!

Heartbreaking, but the parents who left the gun out so that Sally could get a hold of it ought to be thrown in jail and/or severely punished! This goes on far too often in today's society; I don't like guns; guns have always terrified me!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :( >tears! <
