Patrolling In An Afghan Wonderland
By Ray Daley.

Sand’s too bright, it’s just glistening
Past the wire, Dickers listening,
The desert is shite, Looks crappy tonight
Patrolling in an Afghan wonderland.

Gone away, the gozome bird
Here to stay, the radar dome bird
But it feels so wrong, As we go along
Patrolling in an Afghan wonderland.

In the compound we can’t build a snowman
Pretend we’re not eating Biscuits, Brown.
Ask us if we’re worried, We’ll say no man!
Just tell us that the Op is drawing down?

Later on, We’ll conspire
To ask IS, for a ceasefire.
Will the brass stand us down, then pass beers around?
Patrolling in an Afghan wonderland.

Sleigh bells ring, Are you listening?
With AK’s; the country’s bristling
Can we please go home? Leave this place alone,
Patrolling in an Afghan wonderland.

THE END
