It’s no joking matter

You may think
What I am going to tell you
Is a joking matter;
Not at all;
It’s no joking matter
When everybody is scared;
It’s no joking matter
When everybody is complaining
So much of insecurity;
It’s no joking matter
When people are sleeping
With all eyes open
Because they don’t know
What may happen;
It’s no joking matter
When unscrupulous individuals
Armed to the teeth
Break into homes at will
And harrass peaceful citizens;
It’s no joking matter
When you get a message
At midnight
From an unidentified gunman,
Telling you he’s coming;
That you should wait;
And see his colours
When he comes;
With all honesty,
It’s no joking matter.
Security is not a thing
To toy with.
