Weapon Wonderland Song Parody

You can hear me attempt to sing my Weapon Wonderland song parody a cappella here. But since I have a lousy voice, it might be safest to just read my parody lyrics:

Weapon Wonderland Song Parody (to be sung to Winter Wonderland)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Gun sales surge. Are you listenin’?
Ammunition keeps glistenin’.
They’re arming tonight and causing a fright.
U.S. Constitution arms the land.

People die for no reason.
Children shot! ‘Tis the season.
A terrible blight, each night after night.
Gun rights absolutists harm our land.

NRA and cronies claim our homeland
Must allow their arms in every town,
Claiming guns will help us.
We say “No man!
“The murder stats have got to go way down.”

Weapon fans have conspired.
Now our nation is mired.
With lives we have paid.
New laws must be made.
Or soon we’ll have a gun in every hand.

    .the ‘winter wonderland tune’ is a great medium for this poem; I’m glad you write about the truth in our culture..not a promising sight ….excellent!

  6. Alex Dissing says:

    Thanks so much everyone for your enthusiasm!

    The contrast between the “Winter Wonderland” tune and the tragic subject matter makes this already strong piece more powerful for me. Such a tragedy that events like those in Connecticut keep happening. It looks like New York State has made a move towards trying to take some preventative measures. Watching with interest on the other side of the Atlantic.

    Parodies are difficult to craft and the weapons gave me chills, which I believe is your desired response. Well done.

  10. Kelvin S.M. says:

    …you entertained but quite a haunting feel lingers me here…

  11. JulesPaige says:

    Guns aren’t the only weapons that need stricter guide lines.
    Oh if there were some sort of place to purchase sanity!?

    I Saw Daddy Shooting Santa Claus

    I saw Daddy shooting Santa Claus
    In front of the fireplace last night.
    He didn’t see me creep
    Down the stairs to have a peek
    He thought I was locked
    Up in my bedroom fast asleep.

    Then, I saw Daddy shoot old Santa Claus
    Between two buttons snowy white.
    “Tell the police when they come around,
    Daddy was forced to `stand his ground’
    When Santa Claus broke in last night!”

    (Sorry I’m late on this one; been busy.)
