SEARCH AND DESTROY
His Kalashnikov rattled rounds down range
The platoon responded in force
Twenty M16’s hoped to change
The direction of the ill gotten force
Those AKs’ rattled again that night
The gunships killed them all
A battalion will chase and win the fight
But how many soldiers will fall?
What is the cost of a life or three?
In a far off Asian war
What does it matter to you or me?
If the enemy racks up the score
The Kalashnikov rattles again today
More soldiers will fall tonight
Mortars and rockets will carry away
Brave soldiers who had to fight
