The Sniper

Post by norman » Sat Feb 16, 2013 2:37 pm

As he lays waiting
There in the burning sand
He often wanders
If he'll ever see his home land

Or should he get back
And make it back alive
Will he meet grateful hands
Or must he struggle and strife

Will his girlfriend be there
Or will she leave him in the dust
Or even old time friends
He thought he could trust

He lays with his sniper rifle
Waiting on a convoy to come by
Deep in his heart and mind
He can hear the painful cries

He must follow his command
From higher up the chain
Though he's the trigger man
He can feel ,those families pain

Then his mind drifts off
To the love of his kids back home
How he can't wait to hold them
Swearing to never again to roam

In the distance now
He sees the head lights
So he starts getting ready
As he gets them in his sights

Before he realizes it
His bullet has found its markl
The driver is instantly dead
No one seen even the a spark

The other truck keeps coming
As he reloads his chamber too
Those bullets find their marks
For he is one of the chosen few

They never knew what hit them
They never even saw his flash
But, death found them much quicker
Than if they had died in a crash

So support your soldiers
Where ever they may be
For we have no idea
Of all the Hell they must see

NORMAN, THIS IS A GREAT TRIBUTE TO OUR MEN IN THE MILITARY AND THE ONE GUY WHO CAME HOME THAT WAS THE WORLD NUMBER ONE SNIPER WAS KILLED MONTHS LATER HERE ON AMERICAN SOIL. WHAT A SIN AND CRIME. GOD REST HIS SOUL AND COMFORT US FAMILY. HOW COME OUR ELECTED OFFICALS RECIEVE SECURITY FOR LIFE IN OR OUT OF OFFICE AND A MAN WHO GAVE SO MUCH TO SAVE AMERICA IS UNGUARDED AND FORGOTTEN OF HIS LARGE CONTRIBUTION TO AMERICA. SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE I SAY.
SINCERELY BRENDA

thanks ladies i'm glad you enjoyed

and yes brenda i agree with you about the politicians as well
put them on minimum wages and send half of them over in with the soldiers and force those of retiring age to retire
and the job market will open wide open lol
and watch how fast they change their minds on isues as well

even if they pass the bill on guns psychos will just find ways to kill regardless!!!!!!!!!!
