Well done, Shammah-Michael, and we're delighted to publish Gear 4 below, for you to enjoy.
Brink of death what should I do,
Go away I don’t even know you.
Why are you attacking me?
I don’t have beef with you just let me be.
They enemy says, ‘give me your head’,
I just say I don’t want blood to be shed.
He draws out his sword to strike,
I have no choice but to fight.
Busoshoku Haki Activate,
I blow into my arms I will not accept this fate.
My body enlargens this is it,
This is the power to beat this twit.
My transformation is complete I can win,
My chances of death aren’t now too grim.
The enemy has a smirk on his face,
You can’t beat me you only make a bigger target for my weapons grace.
He charges at me like a hawk,
This is my power you gawk.
He jammed his weapon in the centre of my body,
But my haki stopped it from piercing my tummy.
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,
GUM – GUM CANNON!
What kind of power is this he shouts while he sheds gore,
This is my new transformation
