The Frightened Finger

The frightened finger reaches for a trigger
And aims for the heart of its fears.
Remove the fear, and its target is leisure:
Inanimate targets or else hunting deer.
Or perhaps it holds no weapon at all
But a pen or a cell phone or coke.
And if that is the case, reducing those fears
Should not be reduced to a joke.
