Smoldering skies,
amnestic tides,
loaded dice,
dangerous lies,
and lowlives.
All these and more I've
known my whole life.

"No mercy,"
Has always been my motto.
Life has taught me you
can't get hurt when you
don't get your hopes up.

I've had plenty of enemies
Left numbers in my wake
Always known what to do
but there have been times
where I got my *** beat, too.

Quick-footed is the world I walk
hot coals and the unknown
keep this soul in his toes.

And I've known *******--
had my ticker left tocked
all my gears rusted
and my world rocked.

I've known many things
Had my brains picked at;
plucked, like my heart strings.
Fought many a battle
and ended many wars.
Though, one courtesy
I've never known was
mercy.
