Steady Heart


Every time you fly the fighter aircraft

With a steady heart and focussed thoughts

Equipped with years of training

Your country shivers for you

Strangers pray for you


Spare a thought for your family

Think of your expectant nation

And pause a minute

With a shred of humanity

Still in your heart

Think of your enemy

A victim of your destruction

Prepared to strike back

Both automated to perish

Following somebody’s orders

Who would sign treaties

And shake hands

After nothing is left

And everyone is gone
