MUSA NDHLOVU (1994 April 04 / SOUTH AFRICA MPUMALANGA)
A SILENT GUN
You don't need a big bang
You can just be invinceabl
You can only be seen by those who knows
You can never be heard
Whenever they make noises in class
The noises to answer questions
You can be there doing nothing about it
You can pretend to not know.
A silent gun don't need a big bang
It is seen by the damage it did
A silent gun don't fight for position
It just do what it dose best.
I don't need to blow my own trumpet
I don't need to show how best I can do
I don't even bother making noise
I don't fight back in words.
Give me a pen and a paper to show you
Give me the task I perform best
Give me the victim to attack
My victim is a question paper to answer
I am, I am the Silent Gun.
