Outlaw

Kid, you’ve got some spine
Walking into this camp of mine
And with an offer so intriguing
It’s rather hard to decline.

But all in all, I gotta say,
You’re coming at this the wrong way:
When looking for a white knight,
You don’t trespass in the gray.

See, I’m not here to fight your fight;
But, my pockets are feeling a little light…
So, if you want my sword and shield,
I’ll need some gold within my sight.


 

Well, this week’s CW prompt is to:

“Write a story inspired by the word “shield”.”
