DOUBLE DATING DEATH
You entered the War arena at a tender age
You were kept in the dark at that stage
Through your training and deployment
You received a pittance of payment from that moment
Your character was being moulded
By the Regimental Sergeants Major you were scolded!
Your qualities were recorded
Again with medals you were rewarded
You were sent on missions into No Man’s Land
You and your Buddies found that grande
Behind Enemy lines
Not even for your troops to find!
On a hill without shelter
Moving only at night for food and water
Then your skills to ply once more you would hone
Identifying your Target and without a groan
You would with one shot from your 50mm Sniper Rifle
Turn the victims brains and guts into pulp
Yes, you were Double Dating Death without fear
Knowing that your days back in the States were near!
YOU NEVER NEEDED AN ALIBI FOR AN ASSASSIN!
