Gunfighter's walk

Written by: Giorgio A. V.


Dark angel of heartbeating pound,
sixth sense of premonition glide,
kin to his ways and scopes to bound,
steel spurs transmit the spell around,
Smith-Wesson guns - the tombs on ground,
(companions faithful, by his side),
Dark angel of heartbeating pound,
sixth sense of premonition glide.

Meanwhile he walks one small detail,
may be enough to draw his stare,
unsound the randomness can't fail,
guns fire above the dusted  trail,
the spurs' there jingle - steps curtail;
the dames in gowns round eyed will glare,
Meanwhile he walks one small detail,
may be enough to draw his stare.

On deathwalk's noon with light increased,
the onslaught slugs will serve the cause,
hands flash and men attend Death's feast,
(but all gunfighters don't believe,
that once will be among deceased);
atrocious fast the drawing laws,
On deathwalk's noon with light increased,
the onslaught slugs will serve the cause.

Gunfighter's walk on dust, midday,
where forty fours will blossom fire,
his eyes fast sweep on each detail,
a draw of bluff on deathwalk trail,
will have sixes' to beat double play,
black coat, gun belt - thorn dry briar.
Gunfighter's walk on dust, midday,
where forty fours will blossom fire.
