Jack

I’ve crossed the line.
I’ve walked that bamboo
bridge many times.

I know, right from wrong.
I’ve sung a lonely song.
I’ve faced the war viper.
I’ve paid the piper.
I’ve felt the scorch of hell,
and survived until now
to tell.

Without regrets, without looking back,
I fade away in the night so black.
Just remember my name was,

Jack.
