from The Quiet War in Florida, (1942-1945, U-Boats Keep Close Eyes on US.)


Daw'dawn daw dawn ,the producer'o light.
fresh in Florida where the sun comes outta
the sea, and the sea is rife with grat'itude.
The sea's gonna have much better parkin'pla'ces
the key is that's a great place for treasure  hiding
(& jeez, aye need be sellin'my stuffysure). stash
to them loggerhead sea turtles who do same
things day in day out. They whisper sweet-nothings
in ears that are like to recall such a recollection.

Yes, 1942. I knew when war was enraged, engaged in thee
dunes beloved Flo'da. Nazi-German U-Boats off the coast,
rafts to bring their agents ashore, Burying munitions  behind
the dunes. Some even hiked into Jacksonville to get booze and food.
Most caught by US agents and remanded  to POW camps
further inland. No violent engagements cited.

 Numerous US merchant ships and U-Boats  sunk. Near-80 years resting
 "in peace", below Florida waters of the Atlantic ocean and Gulf of Mexico.
Actually 100s of "iron Coffins", "down there''
along Florida's many miles of seacoast.

                                 G'awed Blezz Ameria &
                               Salute to all those Sacrificed
