Get Rid Of The Advertisements

A Special Night Out
 
Follow your leader is the way,
they leave the aeroplane.
Into the sky and float away,
skydiving once again.

Equipped to tackle anyone,
with a ‘HALO’ jump they start.
No adversary will make them run,
‘cos they’re not feint of heart.

High above the clouds they dive,
their arms and legs outspread.
They're trained so well how to survive,
these men the bad guys dread.

When time is right they’ll pull the ring,
which then deploys the ‘chute’.
A short time then they will swing,
the last time they’ll look ‘cute’.

Once on ground they organise,
before they start the walk.
All signals done with hands and eyes,
you’ll seldom hear them talk.

To breathe the stillness of the night,
for them is quite fulfilling.
At target zone they’ll do what’s right,
which might include blood spilling.

Terrain may change from grassy plain,
to rock, then on through wood.
Embracing change helps them sustain,
that’s why they are so good.

Sabotage it is this trip,
involving high explosives.
Take out a rebel airstrip,
though it won’t affect their motives.

The good guys do their task and leave,
on foot to their R.V.,
As they go they’ll duck and weave,
as quiet as can be.

Once again the task is done,
each one of them survived.
From that strip no guns will run,
some bad guys now deprived.



Author’s note: ‘A ‘HALO’ jump from a plane
is so called because it uses a technique called
High Altitude Low Opening.
The operatives leave the host aircraft above
cloud height but still don’t open their
parachutes until the lowest possible height.
