And then the day dawned nearer
Those young men rehearsed and brave
Plant kisses strong but tender
Within hearts to treasure and save
A mother's face all tear-stained
The wives with love on show
Children dressed up tidy
How long will they have to go
The decision came down to two men
Both ambitious in their minds
Strategic pinpoint precision
The targets out there to find
While people go about their business
Pretending it's a normal day
The guns are compassing in now
A choice of sites to play
Upon this huge sandy landscape
A dryness in the mouth
The rockets are honing in now
A fraction to the south
With darkness creeping over
The men in camouflage
Step out into the pale night
And wonder what's at large
The friends stand shoulder to shoulder
Wondering what the night will bring
Their eyes peer out like search lights
In the distance the bomb blasts ring
Great plumes of blackened debris
Rise high into the sky
The tortured shriek of sirens
Another catastrophe, why
The soldiers on ground level
Look up into the air
Those men in flying vessels
With fixed sites they do stare
And what an abomination
What reason for it all
While presidents sit in office
Please God, let no man fall
