FRIENDLY

Post rush hour Baker Street Station
Bench beneath the underground sign
Looking through the window Eastward
I could see you in the carriage Westward
Your dead son was my brother-in-arms
 
Standing Stag 4A.M. Brecon Beacon
SUSAT sights frozen snow
When the cross bolt safety is off
The fire selector lever of the SA80
Allows semi and full automatic fire
 
You sneezed and breathed
And under my breath
I said “Bless you”.
