Give guns to teachers?  How about giving guns to kids too!  Just like Tom Paxton sang about in the ‘60s.

 

Buy a Gun for Your Son

Words and Music by Tom Paxton

 

“Hallelujah, Dads and Mommies,
Cowboys, Rebels, Yanks and Commies
Buy yourselves some real red blooded fun.
If you want to make the grade,
You've got to have a hand grenade,
And a fully automatic G.I. Gun.

[Cho:]
Buy a gun for your son right away, Sir
Shake his hand like a man and let him play, Sir.
Let his little mind expand, Place a weapon in his hand,
For the skills he learns today will someday pay, Sir.

 

Pound that kid into submission
'Till he's mastered Nuclear Fission
Buy him plastic warheads by the score,
Once he's got the taste of blood,
He's gonna sneak up on his buddies
Starting his own thermo-nuclear war.

[Cho.]

 

Buy him khakis and fatigues,
And sign him up in little leagues,
Give him calisthenics as a rule.
Once you've banished fear and dread,
Then pat his seven year-old head,
And send him off to military school.

[Cho]

 

Once he's grown to be a man,
He might get tired of blasting Granny,
Then you'll see a crisis coming on.
Don't get worried, don't get nervous.
Send that kid into the service,
Let him rise into the Pentagon.

[Cho]

 

At the Pentagon he'll rise.
The President he will advise,
His reputation growing all the while.
With his picture on the wall,
He'll get that long-awaited call,
And press the firing buttons with a smile.

[Cho]“

 

God speed to the kids who will do what needs to be done to end this madness.

Abraham, Martin, and John ======= Dion DiMucci

 

My teenage years began in 1967.  I was too young to understand the causes and effects of what happened back then.  Soon it was April.  Then June.  Then this song came along and I knew it reported facts, but it tried to reach me in a hopeful way.

 

“... Didn't you love the things they stood for?
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me?
And we'll be free,
Someday soon it's gonna be one day.
Has anybody here seen my old friend Bobby,
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walkin' up over the hill
With Abraham, Martin and John.”

 

Bass, guitar, harp ..... proceed to coda to the ethereal end........

Masters of War ==== Bob Dylan

 

”... you have thrown the worst fear that can ever be hurled,

afraid to bring children into the world,

for threatening my baby unborn and unnamed,

you ain’t worth the blood that runs through your veins ...”

Sorry about the disjointed previous post.  Too much Xmas and not enough experience with this posting stuff.

 

Anyway, the song is Apeman.  It was written by Ray Davies and performed by the Kinks.  Here’s the lyric:

 

I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized
'Cause I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation
And the crazy politicians
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore
And make like an Apeman
