The Rabbit's Got the Gun

The Rabbit's Got the Gun

You can mouth about free speech and you can tell me mine's unworthy
You can pummel me with protest signs and emit sounds unearthly
You can yell that Bush is Hitler till your vocal chords are done--
But it ain't no fun a-huntin', when the rabbit's got the gun.

Back in the years of Clinton when your message dominated
You sneered and snidely chided while I stood by, all frustrated
And I had to choke the dust of all that evil man had done
But it ain't no fun a-huntin', when the rabbit's got the gun.

So just trot out your celebrities, the Limo Libs all lined up
And skew your evening news polls, when the mindless mob you've signed up
Don't forget to yell, "You fascist!" as to Hollywood you run
But you won't be rejoicing long-- the rabbit's got the gun.

You would not help our country while we took down the dictator
And now you mouth of human rights? Well, I say, see ya later!
Go find a little island where you all can have your fun
Cause it ain't no fun a-huntin', when the rabbit's got the gun.

The First Amendment isn't there for those you disagree with?
Just the Birkenstocked, be-dreaded crowd you have your herbal tea with?
Or the socialists who've tried to harm this country from Day One?
The little rabbit's twitchin', and she's handy with the gun.

The USA is sick of how you run down our real heroes
And all you have are Mike and Tim and Janeane, all real zeroes
George W showed up in time to spoil all your fun
I recommend you hide real fast. The rabbit's got the gun.

You'll probably take this as a threat, and feel all persecuted
When all I'm trying to say is, now your glory days are booted!
Immerse yourself in history, throw off the shackles, Hon
'Cuz ou and Bill will hunt no more. The rabbit's got the gun.

Well, I just sent a copy to Hugh Hewitt. Maybe he'll read it on air.

Hugh Hewitt is giving you great attention. Good way to portray the anti-war/American weenies who say that being anti-war is patriotic! When they say they can say what they want (true) that we should give them a forum (not true) or otherwise WE are suppressing THEIR 1st Amendment rights. They are forgetting...WE are NOT the government. We can decide to listen, give a platform or demonize them for their idiocy. It's not a distinction between right and left, it's a distinction that allows us to say things with political freedom, which they are. We, thankfully, are also free to respond by saying something like, "We don't HAVE to listen to you," (apparently because they are movie stars they think they have a right to be HEARD.); or "You're uneducated and don't even understand the paradigms you claim to oppose."

Tim Robbins sounded like a moron thinking he was some sort of Shakespearean soliloquist giving some really important speech. He was preaching to the choir and those of us who are not in the choir found out about what he said and calling him on it.

Thanks to all who said good things about this! I'm rather proud of it. Because of the response here and the mail I'm getting, here's the scoop: The Rabbit's Got the Gun, (c) 2003 Sharon L. Shannon. Feel free to pass around with my name, please.

No, I haven't sent to Ann Coulter. Should I?

You or somebody should send it to Ann Coulter. In the meantime, I sent it to James Taranto of Best of the Web Today on OpinionJournal.com

I would also suggest that the poem be distributed with your acknowledgment of Ann Coulter's authorship of the phrase, which I think summarizes beautifully what we are witnessing, and which I hope and pray signals a permanent change in the way these holy cows known for little more than being known are viewed and treated in this society.

I am very willing to acknowledge Ann Coulter's inspiring me to write this. I don't know that she coined the phrase--it was a Joan Jett song before that, I think, and it might go back before her too.

Well, let's agree that Ann applied the phrase to this particular situation.

(In the meantime, I'm afraid my email to OpinionJournal.com didn't seem to go through - something with the mail server on my end.)
