You’re a ticking time bomb
that detonates at random.
Tick. Tick. Boom.
I feel sorry for the unfortunate soul
that sets you off with the slightest move.
You are merciless and unforgiving.
You are relentless in your ways.
When you explode,
no innocent or rational mind
stands a chance.
Your shots are menacing.
Your sight is just threatening.
And, after the smoke clears,
our wounds are being licked,
while you remain unharmed,
