The moment has come.
You stand there numb
with your brothers-
Standing with you.
Not a sound is heard
except for your breathing
and pounding of your heart
against your ribs,
in your ears and throat…
You ride the waves.
Suddenly, almost without warning
the huge heavy steel mouth
of the cage you were in
throws itself down
and spews you and the rest out-
You somehow approach the beach
wanting to remember none of it.
Finger on the trigger
people- your friends, your country!
Dropping like flies all around you
yet you and the others forge on,
Killing, destroying and killing more.
Men, bodies, things-
A blur is all they are to you.
The enemy and your survival pushes you on-
there’s no backing out.
