Despondent Argies trudge past
Dennis, bellows, “get to your safe building,
You’ve better protection there”
Officer barks and shoots over fleeing conscripts’ heads.
Parents feed cat, turn off
Family scurrying in bullet dodging fear.
Blood spots in the snow.
Special Forces, silently watching, giving hope.
Liberators are near.
Hospital crowded with war weary locals.
Street fighting expected.
Medical staff prepare.
All staring at the air.
White helicopter lands.
Peace men walk by,
They’re here! We’re Free.
Town filled with long awaited friendly faces.
Brave, brave British military men,
an answered prayer
