 Running Blind with Pointy Objects

A-Flight / Dawn Patrol

A-Flight lifted
its dawn patrol
rising to the sun
clawing their way
towards heaven above
charging up their guns...

The frail bi-planes flitted
toward the enemy flight
the Circus was a coming
they`d meet up at first light...

The flew above the trenchlines
above the Ack-Ack guns
into the killing fields on high
hid by the blazing sun...

Those frail fragile coffins
that shuddered in the wind
carried many a valorous lad
to his grisly end...

But still their presense
can be felt.....
nigh to heaven above
The Knights of the Sky
that fought fell and died
for mans brotherhood of love...

Terrence M. Roe
