England W.W. Ii

Poem By Paul F. Ernst

A pilot in the Eagle flight
Was trained and ready for a fight
A scheduled sun up raid drew nigh
He paced then looked up at the sky
And nervously smoked a cig'rette
He certainly appeared upset
I checked his eyes and jumpy ways
Then spoke in a quiet simple phrase
You seem a bit unnerved, that true?
He stared at me, the smoke, he threw
While saying what's not always bared
"Its mission one! Nerves hell! I'm scared!"

Jesus, stealthily shook the world and moved it round To help us act out the purpose of our existence It was his ideals of Love that passed the tests of time
And moved our Life towards the balance it seeks On Calvary, Jesus Hope the fire of Love

Confusion, it seems, is all around
