 Poems by The Old Cowboy

To Security

This poem is for all the Air and Security Policeman who have and still guard our War Birds.

Walking alone in the endless night
Watching a falling star fade from sight

Stopping to listen to distance sounds
Eyes peering into the darkness all around

Great Birds setting at rest
So many gather in one nest

Nestled in their bellies destruction
Silently waiting for their instructions

As night grows to early dawn
You see them sitting on a concrete lawn

Not feathers but skin of brown and green
In the streaming sunlight can be seen

One lone man tends each bird
Always honoring his sworn word

Through snow and freezing sleet
There in the wind rain and heat

Parka's mukluk's and gloves
All sharing for these birds our love

We guarded them while they protected you
Those fabulous War birds the B-52's
