This is a Metaphoric Poem inspired by US President lowering his tone and urging North Korea
to come to table and negotiate, See the footnote and visit my site for a link to the Newspaper INDEPENDENT, please.

The Fastest Gun has problems.
So many wannabe Gunfighters
Have been practising and now
It seems that sooner or later
a Gunfight is inevitable and
The Fastest Gunfighter wants
To avoid the future Gunfight.

He has started telling those
Wannabe gunfighters that
The Gunfight is really bad,
Guns are evil and they must
Avoid the guns and love peace.
The wannabe gunfighters
Are not listening to him and
I just keep wondering, why?

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Pulse?
Some in Congress and the private sector want to spend a lot of time—and money—preparing for
the threat of electro magnetic pulse weapons. But is that the right priority?

(3)My Thoughts:Trump has changed his tone and asked North Korea to come to the table to talk about getting rid of their Atomic Weapons. Many years ago US President asked India to sign Non-proliferation Treaty of Nuclear Arms and India replied readiness to sign the treaty provided the USA got rid of their Nuclear Arms.
GUNFIGHT is about possible Nuclear War because North Korea can explode a Nuclear EMP Bomb 20 miles above the USA and the Electromagnetic Pulse could destroy the Power Grid, damage Communication using Computers. It could damage all equipment running on Electricity. It can have any living thing destroyed within range. This changes the balance.
Now there is no need to deliver a Nuclear Bomb at a precise target. Missile delivering the Atomic Bomb can be intercepted and destroyed but space above the USA is hard to protect with the new type of Atomic EMP Bomb.
Nuclear War is a real possibility. A man having Guns cannot ask others not to have Guns. The US has tried by threatening other countries with sanctions. It has not worked.
Humans are going to destroy the human race and a lot of other living things too by the Nuclear War.
Two members of the disbanded congressional Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) commission said at a recent House Homeland Security subcommittee hearing that a nuclear EMP attack from Kim Jong Un was the "biggest threat" to the US yet it remains "unacknowledged" by the government.

More attention has been focused on the regime's continued testing of intercontinental ballistic missiles this year, but the dictatorship also recently claimed to have tested a hydrogen bomb underground in September.

The regime said in a public statement that such a bomb could be detonated at high altitudes for "super-powerful EMP attack according to strategic goals".

William Graham, chairman of the former EMP commission and its former chief of staff, Peter Vincent Pry, warned the hearing that such an attack could "shut down the US electric power grid for an indefinite period, leading to the death within a year of up to 90 per cent of all Americans."

They urged the House to protect the grid, and warned that US ballistic missile defence systems are currently designed to intercept missiles from North Korea that approach the US over the North Polar region, but not over the South Polar region.

Trump: US's military solution for North Korea would be 'devastating'
Former Republican representative Curt Weldon, one of the founders of the former commission, wrote in The Hill last month: "A nuclear EMP attack would destroy electronics everywhere, cause planes to crash, stop cars and rail traffic, blackout electric grids and other critical infrastructures that make modern civilization, and life itself, possible. Eventually, millions would die from starvation, disease, and societal collapse."
