Ode to the Missileer

Here is a little something I wrote on a 48. I hope you all enjoy.


ODE TO THE MISSILEER

In the great white north, land of winds and snows
Live a breed of steely eyed warriors the world seldom knows
They wake up each morning before the sun
Vowing not to return until their job is done
Before they begin their journey in glee,
They must assemble together for a thing called Pre-D
And so 30 brave souls will traverse this land
Far from the gunfire of the desert sand
Their mission is peace and always shall be
Their weapon, destruction at the turn of a key
Through dispatch and changeover and inspections galore
They settle in for their tour, underneath the earth’s floor
FM and Chef and even the SRT
Each one is critical and each do their part
Exercise! Exercise! They constantly practice
Not even the snow of winter distracts us
They practice and practice, all day and all night
Praying the day does not come, when they are called on to fight
Their duty’s not done until they changeover
With another brave crew, but still their day’s not over
Retrace their steps home is what they must do
Knowing in 3 days time their journey begins anew

Aproaching the 2 year anniversary of this post, happy birthday.
Keep your eyes on the console and your nose in the checklist.
