The Fighter Pilot
A fighter pilot’s life it has been said is really second to none.
But ask the guy sitting on the hot seat and he’ll say it’s not much fun.
Every time he goes to fly, his aircraft is always parked at the far end.
Humping a chute, that’s half his weight and the steps yet to ascend.
Long before the engine starts, he’ll be wet and drenched with sweat,
An hour strapped in his little cockpit, going through his pre-start checks.
