Draw Near to God by the Glory of His Gun

I wonder if they hear God
In the recoil of a gun.
Or if——
In the choir of children’s screams
They hear angels sing.

Does gunpowder rise like incense
To carry their prayers
Up to heaven?

If guns be their Bibles
And bullets be their verses,
Then let their communion
Draw them into the presence of God.
