Never Let The Devil Speak, by Danny Kemp

Pack a loaded gun…Keep it at your side.

If someone takes a run…Know it’s them that lied.

Never miss a shot……Shoot ’em so they die.

Live a secret life….Shoot them in the eye

Knock ‘em down dead….Let the blood rain.

Paint the floor red….You’ll never to be the same.

Pack a loaded gun…Keep it at your side.

Never leave the others….Any place to hide.


Shoot ‘em down. Shoot ‘em down. Shoot ‘em down dead.

Never speak a word….That don’t need to be said.

Find the weakness in others…Use your time well.

If you pack that gun….Never leave it still.


Keep the safety off….But the trigger tight.

Take your shot quick…Kill with all your might.

Keep your tool primed…Like a dog about to bark

Tell ‘em nothing at all….Keep ‘em in the dark

When it comes to die…. Smell it ‘fore it comes.

You’ve had a hard time…Let ‘em bury you with your guns.

But never say goodbye… Never let it end.

Keep the game playing….Never let it mend.


Chorus….

Shoot ‘em down. Shoot ‘em down. Shoot ‘em down dead.

Never speak a word….That don’t need to be said.

Find the weakness in others…Use your time well.

If you pack that gun….Never leave it still.


Keep your tool primed…Like a dog about to bark

Watch the bullets fly…..See how they spark

Bury the gear deep……Hold the secret fast

Be your own man……‘Til the day that’s your last


Shoot ‘em down. Shoot ‘em down. Shoot ‘em down dead.

Now you can’t speak a word….There’s nothing to be said.

Let others find the weakness….You’ve done your time.

KILL THE BASTARDS DEAD…..LET THE GUNS FIRE OFF IN RHYME!


Kill ‘em all, kill ‘em all, kill ‘em all dead.

Never leave the devil with a word that could be said.

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.

      It’s a song lyric, Diana! I sent this one and two others to an American singer last year! The last I heard was that she was working on the music, but that was a while ago now.

        I didn’t realise that! Good for you 🙂 How is the movie coming along for your first book? I’m sorry that I couldn’t get into it 😦

    I was paid again last May for the option to continue, Diana. I think I’m right in saying that 50 Shades of Grey was out about a year before The Desolate Garden having huge publicity and the film of that book has only recently been released. I wait with fingers crossed!
