Someone Might Get Hurt

Can you pull back the bullet
from the gun it sprang...
or harness the words
that Muhammed sang?
Can we cap off the well,
close up the mine,
bask in the sun,
enjoy the wine?
We worship fear and alert
that someone might get hurt,
and tell ourselves the lie
that we'll never die.
