MILITARY DRILL

IT HAPPENED DURING A MILITARY DRILL…


Up 1, 2, 3,

said he

Yeah up 1, 2, 3…

 

And the sound wobbled in my ears

A dizzy feeling settled around

And all the non-existent fears

Came haunting like a hound

 

But Up 1, 2, 3,

Said he

Yeah up 1, 2, 3…

 

The sky grew dark

The colors askew

Glimmered the stars

Through the hazy hues

 

But Up 1, 2, 3,

Said he

Yeah up 1, 2, 3…

 

The earth spun visibly fast

And all the world did follow

With a stroke of wind and blast

Into a pitch black hollow


But Up 1, 2, 3,

Said he

Yeah up 1, 2, 3…

 

And I slipped into an alien land

Without family, friends or foes

And yet through this void mode

I could hear well his echoes

 

Up 1, 2, 3,

Said he

Yeah up 1, 2, 3…

 

Numb and low in the head

Sweet sleep kissed me g’night

Half conscious and half dead

Darkness overcame the bright light

 

Yet  Up 1, 2, 3,

Said he

Yeah up 1, 2, 3…

 

But suddenly broke this reverie

My eyes lit up and shone

And all the world seemed to be

Crowded with concern


Still Up 1, 2, 3,

Said he

Yeah up 1, 2, 3…

 

The silence broke away

A weak aura formed

I stood up on my feet

And once again he stormed

 

Up 1, 2, 3,

Said he

Yeah, up 1, 2, 3…
