Big Plasma
« on: March 23, 2021, 01:36:18 AM »

To the colony of Asharu flew a stranger one fine day
Hardly spoke to folks around him, didn't have too much to say
No one dared to ask his business, no one dared to make a slip
The stranger there among them had a big plasma on his ship
Big plasma on his ship

It was early in the morning when he came aboard the town
He came flying from the star side slowly lookin' all around
"He's an outlaw, loose and running," came the whisper from each lip
"And he's here to do some business with the big plasma on his ship"
Big plasma on his ship

In this col'ny there lived an outlaw by the name of Ragnar Red
Many men had tried to take him and that many men were dead
He was vicious and a killer, though a youth of twenty four
And the notches on his ship numbered one and nineteen more
One and nineteen more

Now the stranger started talking, made it plain to folks around
Was a Hegemony ranger, wouldn't be too long in town
He came here to take an outlaw back alive or maybe dead
And he said it didn't matter - he was after Ragnar Red
After Ragnar Red

Wasn't long before the story was relayed to Ragnar Red
But the outlaw didn't worry; men that tried before were dead
Twenty men had tried to take him, twenty men had made a slip
Twenty one would be the ranger with the big plasma on his ship
Big plasma on his ship

The morning passed so quickly it was time for them to face
It was twenty past eleven when they went out into space
Folks were watching from the windows; everybody held their breath
They knew this handsome ranger was about to meet his death
About to meet his death

There was forty klik between them when they stopped to make their play
And the swiftness of the ranger is still talked about today
Ragnar Red had not filled flux before a bolt fairly ripped
And the ranger's aim was deadly with the big plasma on his ship
Big plasma on his ship

It was over in a moment and the folks had gathered round
There before them lay the hulk of the outlaw wholly burnt
Oh he might have went on livin', but he made one fatal slip
When he tried to match the ranger with the big plasma on his ship

Big plasma on his ship Big plasma, big plasma
When he tried to match the ranger with the big plasma on his ship
Big plasma on his ship
