Stanza 164


As Musa sees their chances dissipate
He hears the strident call to terminate
Hostilities and quickly disengage.
While Musa has not satisfied his rage,
He knows the air support is too intense
To overcome the foe. Belligerence
Must be postponed until another day
When tactical advantages will weigh
In favor of the downtrod and oppressed.
The fighters who courageously contest
The progress of the evil infantry,
Are also loath to let the enemy
Escape their vengeance. When they hear the call
They have no knowledge of the aerial
Attack, and many of the men advance
Instead of fleeing while they have the chance.
As tunnel vision focuses their eyes
Upon the foul marines, their own demise
Was sealed when twenty millimeter shells
Ignited multiple incendiary hells.
