Title: Six.

Old sick shooter.
Six of the best.
Six nuggets of lead in the straight man’s chest.

Six Chiefs for every Indian.
Six meetings for every hour’s work done.

Six hundred health and safety reviews
for every pay rise overdue.

Six celebrities endorsing Sky
in every single living room.

Six lies
for every honest word.

Six vultures
for every minor bird.

Old sick shooter.
Six of the best.
Six nuggets of lead in the straight man’s chest.
