The past is not yours
You’ve done half a dog’s watch
You’ve no medals, no tours
I come from a time
Of steel men and wood ships
You are new to these waters
Batten down those loose lips
My nose, it is hardened
My skin’s crusted with salt
You’re fresh, in need of ruling
Bring inspiration to a halt!

The calm of darkness comforting my soul
For the wedding has ended; guests have left

Shattered wooden doors all over the floor
I wake up and feel the fear in my heart.
(Damn, get that one! Shoot him!)

Fangs Out, Eyes Up
Paulo was far from the perfect operator, but not too far from the average one. Static filled his mind as he stared intently at the empty radar picture in front of him. The night air was thick with the metronomic hum of the semi-portable radar that spun barely metres above his head. He sat slumped in his chair, imagining the things he could be doing if a few more things had gone his way.
A sharp crackle of static shot through his headset and snapped him alert.
