Tom Smith, Grade 6
Tunnel here, tunnel there
The Vietnam Cong were everywhere
Coming up to say hello
Have a shoot and go below.
You’re in a village but no one’s there
They must be hiding because they’re scared
You yell out we’re here to save you
They yell back we’re here to betray you.
You look around and see the Cong
You dive to cover but you know you’re gone
You hear your friends call your name
But you don’t respond you’re in too much pain
