a book or a gun

sometimes a book
is your weapon
and it makes others
angry;
the pages of proof
they do not know you
or ever will,
those trained to keep
the safety
and are too dangerous
to be holding a gun.
Those who fear others
those who fear too many
things
like books
should not be able
to shoot a man
holding a book.
whatever is true
a life left the earth
and it should not
be so easy
to shoot a man
carrying a book.

notes:
while we do not know all the facts in the case of the shooting-killing in charlostville,there are just too many shootings based on a profile of a future suspect and shooting a man with hands held above his head who did nothing is just another contributing factor. Let honor be worthy of respect only after acting with honor.
