DAD TO SON

If you don’t stick your head in front of it,
You won’t stop it going by,
Unless you have your ass stuck up,
Then the chances are you’ll die.
Stick your head around an obstacle,
Not over the bloody top,
If you have to take a gander,
At the bloke you want to stop.
If you don’t have any cover,
Then find it bloody quick,
‘Cause a lump of Warsaw ammo,
Can make you pretty sick…
Just be careful son we need you,
And living is the trick.
