Here's Alison: Dead Upon The Spot

Alison Ross received a smart reply when she asked her son a pertinent question.

While cutting back my pot plants
And talking with my son
I asked him how it was
That he could take a gun
Aim it with precision
And fire off a shot
And drop some little animal
Dead upon the spot?

He smiled at me and said
The way it seems to me
You’re not looking at this question
The way it ought to be,
What makes you think those pot plants,
Aren’t cowering in pain?
And yet you pick your scissors up
And cut them back again!
