Swords without hilts.

Maple staffs…

flexing, cracking–

WACK, WACK, WACK

–busted palms.

 

Oh you’re gonna get it.

You, are gonna get it.

 

Iron bars…

cold and long,

stiff and stout–

HACK HACK HACK

–broken thumbs.

 

Oh you’re gonna get it.

No, you’re gonna get it.

 

Ironed steel…

slick and strong,

breaks through wind,

raining hard–

SHACK, SHACK

–pinkies gone.

 

Oh, you are gonna get it.

No. You, are gonna get it.

 

Maple, steel,

lead and bronze,

melted, crafted,

shooting–
