Splatter Masquerade

Splatter Masquerade

Another shell loaded
Casings pouring
Brass from the hatch

Kicking back

In the steel cage
Our rolling fortress
Battle we wage

Our wagers

Igniting the brazen
Chasers of sub shock
Incendiary tracers

Bursting forth

From barrels of cannon
Shrapnel box splatters
Surrounding armed tailors

On dashboards

Of brass boards
From turrets and currents
Of thick missile warheads

Ripping through breaches
Simmering off masks

Black powder and sparks soak
Our gaunt splatter masques

Cleaning the leather of cleanliness
Griming the chainmail faces
With toxic propellants

Gas expands

Choking the air with steel
Tendrils gripping the wheel
Of an ironclad beast genteel

Roaring in ire

Furious thundering fires
Disrupt expectant lines
With new cavalry wires

Flamethrowing dragon’s breath
Howling shibboleth

Super hot flares disperse
And bury their grit
Like blitzing drill bits

Exploding into our cockpit

And in our compact fortress
We lead and we dance

And as we can

We fire back
