I asked ChatGPT to write a poem addressing gun violence in the United States. I could not have said it better!
Guns are not toys, but tools of death
Too often used to take a last breath
We hear the shots, the screams, the cries
As loved ones fall and innocence dies
From schools to malls, from homes to streets
The tragedy of gun violence repeats
Families torn apart, lives forever changed
A nation haunted, a problem not estranged
The right to bear arms, enshrined in law
But what of the right to live without fear or awe?
The debate rages on, the solutions unclear
As more blood is shed, more hearts filled with fear
We must come together, across all divides
To find a way to turn the tides
To honor the fallen and the lives shattered
To make our communities safer, not more battered
For the sake of our children and the generations to come
We must act with love, not just words and some
To create a world where gun violence is not the norm
Where all can thrive and feel safe from harm.
