Smoking Gun

I know I’m no angel
but I’m not a devil 
I said.
They said 
I would cause a sea of blood
and it does look a bit like that
I think the sea may be the sky
and the blood a red moon glow,
I’m unsure,
but I know it’s not me who held
the smoking gun.
it’s just a cigarette.
I know I’m under age
but that’s all it is
a cigarette
which lit up the sky 
and bloodied the sea,
made them both red

and gave me a halo.
