20,000 FT

By 16th November 2011December 9th, 2019No Comments

Falling through the clouds, tumbling in the air
Jumping from 20,000, with style, grace and flair
Any sane person would think you’ve lost the plot
but experience, skill and patience let you dust down on the spot
Jump from the back, on green lights flashing bright
As you dive off the ramp into the starry night
Guided by your instinct, trusting on your skill
Pulling up at 500 ft takes an iron will
Landing both feet planted, pulling on the brakes
You’re down again and ready, no time for mistakes
Dump your rig and stash it, grab your gear and run
Slipping silently into the night, aiming down your gun
The jungle swallows you whole, as you set off on your goal
On another mission, onward more you go…
