The Bullet


We were both on patrol

On that fateful day

When a snipers bullet

Took my buddy's life away

I heard the shot ring out

I saw my buddy fall

I yelled his name out loud

But he never heard my call

They say it never happened

That my buddy never fell

The shooting was imagined

And I can never tell

But I know what happened

On that tragic day

When that snipers bullet

Took my buddy's life away.

The harsh reality of conflict gives an alternative side to the poetic perspective of Brett Harte's "What The Bullet Sang." Well done. G.

Wow this is real gritty stuff I am lucky to have no knowledge of Randver. Quite a thing to have to recall most unfortunately for you and similar others beset by conflict. How upsetting generally it must be. Frank
