Long Way Down

A cannon. A strap. A piece. A biscuit. A burner. A heater. A chopper. A gat. A hammer. A tool for RULE

Or, you can call it a gun. That’s what fifteen-year-old Will has shoved in the back waistband of his jeans. See, his brother Shawn was just murdered. And Will knows the rules. No crying. No snitching. Revenge. That’s where Will’s now heading, with that gun shoved in the back waistband of his jeans, the gun that was his brother’s gun. He gets on the elevator, seventh floor, stoked. He knows who he’s after. Or does he?

This is an easy, quick read as it is written in verse.  Will is on his way to get his brother’s killer but is battling with his conscience as he rides down in the elevator. It is a good story showing how many things can be connected.  And the ending is left up in the air, did he do it?
