Pepper Shot

Pepper Shot
-Linn Barnes
Lo before me the world i have long
known sad blood ground into the dirt
a shocking stupid mouth uttering
senseless lies and grim fantasies
bringing nothing but hate and contempt
to and for the dead and wounded who
now must collectively dream of a righteous assault
on full auto to end the churlish nightmare
and punch into the thick blood rich ditch
a just measure of long awaited payback
engaging the pepper shot shadow
of the coward who cringes and dives
into the rabbit hole of phony hate
before the new dawn gleams his end
