RHODESIA/ZIMBABWE 1980
The Township buildings etched out sharpAgainst the orange SunA silhouette of blacknessThe colours slowly runThe morning mist is meltingExposing ground so dryThe bones of fallen soldiersPicked clean by vultures highWho did these men belong toWhat stories could they tell ?Silenced now forever These men have been to HellWe’ve been out here for two long weeksPatrolling in the heatOne more week till we go homeThen comrades we will meetWe ‘ Selous Scouts ‘ have seen it allThe dying and the deadThe women raped in villagesThe children killed in bedThe men with amputationsCut off to teach a lessonTo instil fear amongst themBut still alive, a blessing ?I’ve grown immune to all of thisThe casualties of war Walking past the injuredThe screaming I ignoreBut soon I will be out of thisUnemployed and freeWhen ‘ Mugabe ‘ comes to power Disbanded we will beWe’ll then disperse around the WorldTo war zones far and wideOur memories they will follow usThere’s no place we can hide
