Pulling No Punches



"Let me draw your bath, Sweet Face!"
(the space heater's perched upon the rim,
with some hydrochloric acid, just in case.)

My .45 revolver, my machete from Trelew
will come in very handy, lest 
the other two exigencies fall through.

I think I've thought of everything
except that creep you slept with,
I'll sneak up, and take him by surprise!  

Now the the only thing remaining,
harlot, bane of my existence,
is my holler of delight at your demise!

    I think this will raise some eyebrows in any potetial girlfriends Keith... an electric start with cutting intentions and the other means of your intendeds end don't seem a whole barrell of laughs!! ( weel done )

    I would just like to add, 9 months ago I was bashed from some people that I thought were my friends, because I didn't give them $20,000 dollars I have spent many sleepless nights thinking of revenge but you know it's not me & i will not lower myself to their level, instead i chose to forgive them & move on with my life..

    Oh my, yes revenge can be sweet but is it worth it, we have to live our life & except our journey i hope you make peace on your's Keith great write bit off the wall but that's what i like well done :)
