Gear 4

By Shammah-Michael

Why are you attacking me?

I don’t have beef with you just let me be.

They enemy says, ‘give me your head’,

He charges at me like a hawk,

This is my power you gawk.

You can’t be free this is my new power,

You will go to the other side of the grand line you sour flower.

What are you going to do to me while my tummy absorbs his whole head,

I’m gonna send you flyin’ that’s what I said.

I’m ready to use my new move,


My countermove.

What kind of power is this he shouts while he sheds gore,

This is my new transformation
