Even Blanks Will Kill

A man didn't realize that even blanks will kill if a gun is put to the head.

He pulled the trigger and sadly it ended his life, he is dead.

He fired the gun at his daughter's boyfriend.

He wanted him to think that his life would end.

He started laughing and said it was only a blank.

Then his own life ended after he pulled his prank.

He put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger.

He died and his family was in need of a grave digger.

I wish I could say this poem is fictional but sadly, it's real.

He'd still be alive if he had known that even a blank can kill.

Sadly, this is a true story.
