You see these bullets? Looks like they got fired into something – but it wasn’t anything hard, because they’re not deformed enough for that. No traces of blood or organic matter on them, either. And usually bullets don’t all show up in one spot on the floor, like they were collected and dumped there.


There was a guy; he was right in the middle of the Biafra shitshow. ‘Rolling Low,’ they called him – but they didn’t want to call him anything, because then he’d notice. Supposed to be this hardcore sorcerer, even though he was some kind of European or whatever. He had the same kind of tattoo you mentioned. But word is, the CIA took him out. Hell, they blew off his head.

Military Science

These aren’t just any .30 rounds; they come from one particular East Coast manufacturer. The kind of company that doesn’t ask too many questions, you hear me? There’s some mercenary groups in the Biafra mess who use the rounds; they must get a discount or something, because they don’t use anything else if they can help it.

  1. Nice.
    Nitpicking: the line “He got results.” doesn’t scan for me. It’s only two feet, and the stress pattern clashes between the two.

    1. Maybe add a word like “good”, ” fine” or ” great ” between “got” and “results” then? Because Luke’s right. When you sing it that line ends too abruptly to go well with the rest of the song. Putting in something with one or two syllables might make it scan better.
