AK-47

AK-47

Slide blows back
With a click and clack
Memories of factories
Where metal was
Machined

And bolted to a
Wooden stock
Chopped off
A tree in
Russia

Stamped frame
New ammunition
Gas chambered
Lower receiver
Magazine

Evolved from an age
Of warfare
To be select-fire
And mass/cheaply
Produced

Hundreds of millions
Produced with memories
Of factories where
Wood grain was polished
And metal was stamped
