Petrol bombs being hurled through the air
The banging of dustbin-lids also blare!
Scan the windows for snipers too,
Danger is upon us - and we are few...
People acting like animals crazed with rage,
They turn upon the soldiers in a rampage.
Seconds to decide if you live or die:
“Deploy your men thereby!”
Pulling the soldiers into a trap?
The sniper? The bomb? It could be a deathtrap!
Sanity? That’s now gone!
Draw and use the baton-gun...
Pursue the enemy - it’s him or you
Terrorists? We don’t know who is who.
Screams from women and children too.
Deadly threats and it’s all so true...
Protestants cheer - Catholics scream!
Tell me, “Was this all a dream?”
Scenes of destruction with blood and gore
Doppelgangers became the images of war!
