Forgive and Forget?
As dark shadows move through the moonlit night,
Pop flares quickly glow, then dimly die out of sight.
Sounds of 105’s fill the hot jungle air.
For the nonbelievers, hell’s gates await,
dancing down the dirt road, guilty as sin,
yesterdays Refusers to go,
already know their hellish fate.
Away, away they fled to the four corners of God’s
green earth! Once the jungle war was over,
they all snuck Back!
You know, what they yelled!, “We won’t go!”
Fifty years have quickly passed,
now it’s time, they must atone for their
Fifty-Eight thousand, plus died, while the
traitors danced with the devil!
Now tell me, that I’m to forgive and forget?
When? When the sun melts and hell freezesover!!
