[ NaPo 2017 ] Public Enemy Number One

   
ratta tat tat † †  
ratta tat tat †
†  
Your body soon to be † †
outlined in chalk † †
laying where it's at † †
† †  
There's no poetry † †
in the bullets aimed for me † †
but this ammunition of yours? † †
Bound to backfire in your face † †
† †  
I've got the run of the joint † †
with no patience for wiseguys † †
trying to put me in my place † †
or stool pigeons without a point † †
see? † †
† †  
Reign of chaos, terror † †
drive-by violence is over † †
This town no longer under † †
rule of the Mob † †
 
Yeah, I may not carry a badge † †
Hasn't stopped me from being † †
the Man for the Job † †
† †  
ratta tat tat ta tat † †
ratta tat tat ta tat
† †
† †  
Take that, you Dirty Rat! † †  
† †  
ratta tat tat ta tat † †
†
