`They Dont Shoot Us At Dawn Anymore`

His heart was racing
His blood was pumping
Time to meet the enemy
Look em in the eye
Never say die
They are going to test his memory………

“Why cant you work?”
“If I say Dunkirk, what does it mean?”
“What have you seen?”
“Can you spell green?”
“Do you like the Queen?”
“Are paedophiles obscene?”
“How is your spleen?”

His mind had gone blank
He looked for the door
“Please, I cant take any more of this”
“What the hell do you want?”
“You jumped up little c***”
“Are you just taking the piss?”

Running out in tears
The veteran fled
By six O’clock that night
He be drunk and in a fight
Choking to death in a police cell
The SPVA medical went well.
