SO ONE NIGHT

On a high plateau, Philippines,

Negros Island so fair!

No weeds, skunks, just gorgeous plant life,

Enemy loved it there!

.

.

Just who would not?  So much like their own

In the Highlands, up 5,000 feet.

Sure, “This we much like!  We claim it now!”

“From Americans we may meet.”

.

.

Just not to be!  For we gave it all back

To the natives it goes!

Sure, then they claimed Independence

We returned, everyone knows!

.

.

Why I adore this great land of ours?

America the fair!

Sure, we do have problems, criminals, too!

They spring up everywhere!

.

.

But we have freedom!  Just what does that mean?

Can we then do as we please?

Only when no interference

With the others needs!

.

.

So on this night, on this high plateau,

Our foxholes along side,

I spilled my guts to our squad leader,

Al.  One name that abides!

.

.

So why the surprise called me Rev?

Just Rev and preach, of course.

Then I figured, Squad leader had spilled

His guts, par for the course!

.

.

Sure, Army gossip comes loud and clear!

Fighting not all we do!

You know, God used to make the call clear

Then joined that preaching crew!

.

.

Thanks much to that band of sinners back there!

Wonder, do any still live?

Sure, they knew.  They made call so clear!

This call from God, did they give?  No!

.

.

Sure, I am 93 now!  And do you suppose that

Some of them went to Heaven?

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ…” to be saved!

Maybe, like six or seven!

.

.

Did my witness take?

Sure, I will know in Heaven!

 .

 .

Looking forward!
