Taking Point - Poem by Colin OwenFlood
Taking Point, Leading the squad, the tip of the dagger.
This is not the place of the leader,
For it would be contrary to utilize the dagger by grasping the tip,
And not the hilt.
In training we where told that it was the position of the foreword observer,
To scout out the enemy and warn the rest of the group of the hostile force.
Here at war,
We have learned that the only warning from the point is his bane.
For when you plunge the dagger in to your enemy it will prove fatal,
But the blade will chip and dull.
