Little white plastic ball bearings
Hurt when they impact skin
After fired from spring or CO2

That’s why we wear vests
And masks and helmets over
Jumpsuits and thick pants

That’s why we fear the pellets
They cause pain and decide
Whether or not you “live”

In a dusty and deep trench
I pull back the bolt to
Prime a powerful spring

Through a visor, not much
Can’t be seen without a
Haze of chaos and heat

Barely a figure with a red
Armband can be detected
On the opposite field side

Plastic clinks against metal
To aim down the sights
And fire at that team

How many painful pellets
Shoot from airsoft guns
On a plastic battlefield

Concerned with memory, currency, and destiny, I strive to capture each one as they happen. Join me and consume reality! Radio Reality. City!
