BANG!BANG!BANG!

An obstacle is often a stepping stone.

Prescott

Bang! Bang! Bang!
went the guns
of gangsters from the Gang.
as they ran
from the grasp of mustangs
driven by men
that know when
exactly to bring out their fangs.

Bang! Bang! Bang!
went their guns
as they blazed down the street
moving only to the beat
of their hearts.
Yet not faster than the cars
that seek to put them behind bars.

Bang! Bang! Bang!
went their guns
as they shot at the cops
trying to turn them into a corpse
so that their freedom will not be lost
if ever they did get caught.

Bang! Bang! Bang!
went their guns to no avail
as their shots did fail
coz the cops brought bulletproof along--
so they got caught coz they crossed
into the the wrong street
leading to a wall that stalled their feet.
long enough for the cops to cut their retreat.
