Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Steady Eddie - Part 14
 
A helicopter ready,
to take the team of eight.
First aboard was Eddie,
he really couldn't wait.

Flying from the ship,
low across the sea.
Below radar they'd slip,
on a mission none could see.

By Africa's first light,
in the breath of dawn.
Brief landing on drop site,
then team of eight were gone...

The chopper flew out low,
as it had to do.
It's crew were in the know,
when it left behind the few.

*

Some U.S 'boffins' played,
with satellite projection.
Until a hit they made,
on the pirate's route selection.

All modern 'comms' were used,
to tell the British team.
They wouldn't be confused,
now heading north upstream.

*

Next dry difficult terrain,
the squad of young men marched.
Water ration they'd maintain,
tho' constantly all parched.

The west wind felt like singing,
eight Brit' Marines did not.
Their priority was bringing,
freedom to those caught.

Intelligence assessed,
a family of five.
Behaving at their best,
they should all survive.

A Boston engineer,
his wife and children three.
Had never thought to fear,
hijacking from the sea.

*

'We'll get out kids, don't fret,'
the parents told the others.
Teenage daughter Bet,
and twelve year old twin brothers.

'Let's maintain the candle light,
in our window space.
This camp is dark at night,
give rescue team a trace.'

'When a team arrives,
believe me...it's no joke.
No-one here survives,
except the kidnapped folk.'

'Dad, you seem to know,
a lot,' young Bet then said,
''bout how it's going to go,
and who should end up dead...'

'Dear Bet,' her mother said,
your dad would know of course.
When in service life dad led,
a team in Delta Force...'

* * *

to be continued...

*Author's Note: For those not acquainted
with the abbreviation, 'comms' means communications,
and 'boffins' is the irreverent term for scientists / technicians.
In this instance those working for the C.I.A. and Military Intelligence.
