Poem Sortie

Poem Sortie

 

 

The forces of the enemy surround
Freedom of the besieged sounds
Escape through attack abounds
Fighting for freedom on blood grounds

 

Sortie after sortie
Dead man after dead man
The fighting ceased
Retreat for a while

 

An unnerving peace
Alive in hell
Courage to dwell
One way to home
Sortie again looms

 

At dawn, blood again haunts
Attacking the enemy
Paving the way to advance

 

Sorties for liberation
Victory and celebration
Sortie for peace
The triumphs increase
