Report From A Commander Of A Ratel Armoured Car (Cavatina) - Poem by Gert Strydom
(after Randall Jarrell)
From my mere childhood I was called-up
to the army,
found myself in walls of armoured steel;
roared in with Russian battle tanks,
from projectiles that were exploding,
life was a very rude awakening.
