Walking with darting eye

under blue sky

squelch down so not to be heard.

Incoming and it’s not a bird.

Ground explodes,

leaders implode

ricochet off metal

shoots off rose petal

“Get down! Get Down!

we’re going to find this clown.”

Spray of rounds

cover the ground

We send a whoomp into the wall,

tears fall,

down comes sniper baby and all.
