Guys eyeing a staggering ransom And willing to unleash the gruesome The senders to follow their uncomfortable instructions Or get ready for the unpleasant ructions. In a matter of minutes gagging protesting lips On disobedient backs landing punitive whips A chaining of the resisting limb, Hopes of rescue making slim. In unthinkable venue detaining their captive Before him testing their firearms bloody active Any twist or turn attracting a warning shot Unplanned funny moments punches tropically hot. A hostage wishes things won't be savage A dumping all day long like garbage, His voice at the mercy of silencing sellotape Body to the immovable tied against escape. Kidnappers like bandits behave Thesame choices of weapons making Between knives so razor sharp they can shave And hand guns that won't injury be faking.
