Blackpowder Christmas

Twas two weeks before Christmas
and all through the house
blackpowder equipment was scattered about

A pistol lays here
A cleaning rod there
a new batch of lube in a pan by the chair

Today at the range
he fired 12 shots
he's hitting the bullseye more often than not

The trigger flinch gone
he no longer frowns
now when he shoots the target goes down

For Christmas this year
he only wants cash
to stick in the safe with the rest of his stash

a replica walker
a 3rd model dragoon
what should he buy when the CD comes due?

the wifes been out shopping
buying presents for the kids
he didn't want to shop, he had to go shoot

what time is it now?
oh CRAP! it's past 2
the wifes coming home, if she see's this he's doomed

what a mess to clean up
as he runs round the house
kick open a window, let the sulpher smell out

gotta clean up that sink
and the frying pan too
where in the world can he store this new lube?

as she pulls in the driveway
he's finishing up
shove this in the closet for now's good enough

his mess is cleaned up
and the house now aired out
Merry Christmas to all, now she won't kick him out!

Sometimes inspiration strikes and I turn out something that someone will enjoy. It's only recently that I've been jotting some of this stuff down. Thanks for the compliments guys, Merry Christmas to all you fellow blackpowder nuts!

Bravo, bravo.

Also, it gives me an excuse to brag about how awesome my lady is.

There's a '58 Remington under the tree, with a conversion kit from Taylors.

Merry Christmas to me!

That's awsome LowKey! Thanks! I read it to my wife and she started laughing, she said "so that's what I smell when I come home!"
