SUICIDAL I

W. W. II, Dig it!  Philippine Isles,

I am the scout, yes the only!

Could not kill me, so I kept the job!

Leading, sure, I felt lonely!

.

.

Of course, W. W. II, older that sin.

I could be only one left!

Scouts all killed off, 1st and 2nd then!

So I filled both spots, bereft!

.

.

The forest, jungle, Negros the Island!

Last one Japanese held,

Yes, last and desperate to keep it.

Dug-in, they were shelled.

.

.

American troops, of course, logistically

Shelled!  We had bombs to spare!

Soften the enemy, artillery knew

They did not have a care!

.

.

A way back behind the infantry,

Target within 5 miles.

Scored, oh yes, they were good,

Trajectory compiles–

.

.

So much the loss of explosives, they were

For enemy always dug-in.

Caves, fortifications, they had dug

And as neat as a pin!

.

.

Dug-in, sure, lots of time to dig for

What they had planned to keep!

But sadly for them it was the very last of

Their plunge, to take the leap.

.

.

Cigarette Joe?  Sure, we all were Joe.

They fenced in behind wire

Fabricated a lumber yard, fenced in,

A happy Japanese conspired.

.

.

If cigarette was all he wanted, he got!

Sure, that is all it took.

Glad to surrender!  A Christians should be!

To Jesus, it is in the book.

.

.

Surrendering to Jesus, your happiest day!

No!  He does not give smokes!

As His captive, I am free forever!

And pure joy always invokes!

.

.

Delivered from smokes and enemies power

Freed from Hell, his home,

Deliverance from vile habits, He gives and

You will never walk alone!

.
