An ode for the NRA

To the editor:

What is it about “no” that the NRA doesn’t understand?

No more restaurants

No more stores

Blocking access to our shores

No more condos looming high

Cutting off the blue of sky

No more parks requiring mowing

Herbicides and aids for growing

Parking lots with plantings fair

Wind on water, sky and air

Those are what our eyes desire

These are what our walks inspire.
