Guns

With what approximates words,
(Are you looking at me?)
I am drawing the big GUNS out, now!
[Bang, Bang]
of the British Invasion

The Who, [Bang]
Herman’s Hermits,
Patella Clark,
The Moody Blues,
The Beatles, [Bang! Bang!]
Pink Floyd,
The Dave Clark Five,
Dusty Springfield,
The Rolling Stones,
Marianne Faithful,
and The Yardbirds. [Bang and Double Bang!]

Why have I brought these GUNS into your town?
I do what I want around here. These are my GUNS.
Who knows, maybe tomorrow
I just might be holstering up
the even bigger guns of Juju or Reggae—
both barrels.
