Gang Stand

I’m a chameleon
Blend in
From background to foreground
Get under your skin

Don’t know what he did
Been told he has to be done
It’s an unnecessary battle
One never won

As he runs for his life
6 of us come around
As the first blow goes in
He falls to the ground

The blade snapped in two
The cold made it brittle
F**k this sh*t
I’ll swap a revel for a skittle

We’re too young
Don’t know what we are doing
That’s the thing round here
Always trouble brewing

Let’s change our fate
Pick this boy up and give him a hand
Or all sit down together
Or all stand

C’mon soldier
We’re all too young to die
And I know when you’re alone
You must cry

Put the knife down
We are akin
On our own it’s a struggle
Together we can win

About markious72

Here I wish to let my strange and vivid imagination and opinions run wild. I do hope you like what you read. I would love to be a writer, I won't pretend otherwise. Although it is only in the last couple of years that I have realised it. I guess if it meant to happen it will. Happy reading, happier writing. :-)
