Tombstone Tuesday: An epitaph blaming the gun

Fairfax, Vt., over the remains of a young man accidentally shot:


O fatal gun, why was it him
That you should kill so dead?

Why did’nt you go off” a little higher
And fire above his head?

A warning from an ambitious young man from a tombstone in England

Reader! I have left a world
In which I had much to do,
Sweating and fretting to get rich,
Just such a fool as you.

    NO GUN ever fired itself. Someone has to make it happen, accidentally or not.
