Keep Moving

Falklands 82
Keep Moving

He hugged the ground,

Like it was his lover......
He smelled death,
So he did what he could,
To find some cover.
Hiding behind ......Blades of grass.!
Shrank so small,
He became  an ant.
Stay low.....
Move fast!
They screamed!
It echoed in brain.
Dash ,down,crawl.
He heard the words......
He did it all.
Drummed in by DS's boot.
From depot to Brecon .
He did it by reflex!
He did it as a drill!
He did it all the way up....,
That fucking hill.
May 82 I was that hugging bugger!

Machine guns sent a stream of lead and tracer while the heavens rained molten lead. Men died all around me.
