Loaded for Beware

This pistol of a friend I’ve found
Will step out with the gun’s resound.
The pack behind, off like a shot,
She pulls the trigger, all she’s got.

She makes her peace, out from the gate,
To run near four in thirty-eight.
And with both barrels firing fine,
She zips right past the finish line.

Though she’s not packing on the street,
You still might say she brings the heat.
