Anthony W. Pahl


Don’t worry Dad I’ll be careful
I’ll do everything you bluddy say
With my head down and my arse up
I’ll get through every bloody day.
And when I have to take a gander
at the bloke I need to stop
you can be sure I’ll be real careful
and I’ll get him with my first shot.
Cover? Dad let me assure you
I’ll need a ladder just to reach
the underside of a serpent’s belly
when I to move into that breach.
I’ll be careful Dad, I love you.
I’ve been taught and I will teach!
