How would you live
If you’d done what I did
Twenty-four dead
Small finger pull
Watch the projectile
Explode through the head
Blood on my hands
Blood on my tunic
One head rolling
Severed by garrote
One body flailing
Stiletto opened chest
How many times
Have I pulled the trigger
Sprayed the area with hot lead
Watched bodies fall
Not knowing was it I
Or my buddy made them fall
