Images of D-Day
Water lapping round the hull
In the false and silent lull
Phoney, peaceful, graceful waves
Just befor the dawning day
Flash of lightning across the sky
Deadly, crackling lullaby …
Of tracer ripping through the air
Fatal metal … without care
Tears away the flimsy peace
Everyone so ill at ease
Shattering sounds of earthly hate
All a tremble … What’s our fate?
Plunging through the waves of fear
Fleeting thoughts of those so dear
Feet on terra firma now
Will I once more hold the plough?
Or will I cease to be right here …….
On the sands …. With freedom near
