SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT DARKNESS

Darkness is the cloud before the rain
and it’s seen in the frown of one in pain

and the faces on dolls sent by me and Lynne

Darkness clouds a tyrant’s mean heart
Bin Laden’s cruel work tore families apart

Darkness is a scream from the soul it’s one’s hell
deep in REM sleep – hear the RSM yell?

Darkness in the dawn just before the light
it awaits the sun to erase the night

Darkness covers our patrols out at night
when the.50 cal tracers are the only light
