Gun I & II

Gun
It was the year 1856 stayed at the summer styx
the brigade of pillars left vested along the perimeter
wagon wheels old saloon and dog barking outside
there was word on the street that a silo was vandalized by dogs
those wretched enforcers of the Nile Bay River;
the wretched temptress was whispering her whoredoms
in danger of peril we fired the first shot hitting an indian
More to come...




Gun II

as we left off there was a wagon loose
Dogs of war strengthened with a bit of salt
plunge into the night there was a shooting frenzy
Down at the Barbed Wire Saloon we were loose as a caboose
the drinks were flowing and our credit was showing
had to barter for a new suit then he walked in
Bard's knight ready for a fight drew up his gun
chair were being thrown and Bard was left all alone
until he faced the challenge of a shoot out
the rocky terrain was barren but the show down was fully on
more to come....
