Rage of Fumes

Lock stock and barrel,
There I stood,
Staring at his, two smoking barrels

But I am no Guy Richie
To be directing the shot
Cut, it’s a rap, re-take

Stops not momentum, gboshie!
His gun fire rides on solid air
Gravity has no say

To stand idle watch being defied,
Echoes of the sound titillating
And that was just his voice

Spitting out from gobs, jibes .
Stood in cold winter,
Watching his mouth, his nose

Letting out steam of rage
Like a steam train on high, blowing off fumes
His rage felt inside bottled, exploding out

Cho co chaka cho co cha kaaa!
Like a bull on the charge, He flipped
Caution advised, stay out of his way

There I was, stood there looking
Baffled in intriguing stands
At his two smoky barrels

Oh, how long in hours glass
Is he going to go
On and on and on

To have become, his unpaid therapist
In anger management
Let it go mate, just let it be

    In anger management... fantastic - love it!
