Stamping

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Some people know no greater pleasure,
than stamping
on others.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I’ve faced this sort
in a shootout.
Each so desperate to send me
the wrong way,
that they lose
sight of their goal.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And miss it.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 True, I never got a hand to it,
fingertips scrabbled in vain,
reaching out towards nothing
more in hope than expectation.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 But I didn’t even have to
stop
the shot,
for it was well off the mark.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Hang your head, step back,
my friend,
you’ll not stamp on me this day.
