(A reply to Tony Jensen's poem 'Right to Kill')

No one has the right to kill
To slash a throat with a knife
No one has the right to kill
To take someone else's life

It is wrong to kill just for fun
It is unholy, it is a crime
To blow someone away with a gun
At a point in time

Sometimes there is a need
To deny someone of his life,
Because of his characters and greed
You can make a widow out of his wife

This is a big secret I must spill
I have known it since I was born
That no one has got the right to kill
Just for entertainment, just for fun...
