Buzz Ballad: My Favorite Things

My Favorite Things

---apologies to Rodgers & Hammerstein, and "My Favorite Things"

Mossbergs and Rugers, AK-47s

Colt automatics from 1911

Triggers adjusted for easy firing

These are a few of my favorite things

Walnut grips finely cross-hatched for good traction

Vintage carbines with an easy bolt action

Revolvers with nickel plate or with bluing

These are a few of my favorite things

Clips upon which traces of gun grease linger

Hunting mittens with separate trigger fingers

Bayonet clips and thick webbing for slings

These are a few of my favorite things

When the politicians pander

And cry "Guns must go!"

I quickly drive down to the nearest Wal-Mart

And stock up on more ammo!
