Tally Ho Old Boy - Poem by Darren Mark Pomfret

Still knackered i awaken, i hear the buzzing of flies,
An alarm rings out, as my brothers cry
'Get up you git and take to the skies! ',
I hear a whistle but it aint no tune,
Something heavy is falling i know will go BOOM,
I Run to lottie she'll keep me safe,
So i strap myself in to her metal embrace,
Cries over the radio 'go go get gone' and
'Tally ho old boy lets get it done'

Off we race we're up in the air,
See far more our number this just isnt fair
With a lion in the cockpit and a deafening roar,
Up we went and off we soared,
We met ol fritz and took him down,
Made Herr Wolf look a clown,
For a high price, The day was won
'Tally ho old boy we got it done'

Never before in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many... to so few.
Remember our past and honor those selfless lions that gave everything for our freedom.

    ''selfless'' and ''honor'': the key words..
