1. Shock and Shell

 

Shock and Shell

 

BANG! SMASH!

Under the table,

At the mention of a fable, playing on his mind shock and shell,

Hearing from his own mind “HELL”

How he and his soldiers fell,

Into the gates of darkened hell

 

Shake and Shiver,

Rotting liver,

The men lying in the field a dot,

A dot on creation,

They hear a gun shot.

Playing on his mind shock and shell,

Shouting from his own mind “HELL”

How he and his soldiers fell,

Into the gates of opened hell

 

How his wife bitterly cried,

At the thought that he had died,

Nothing could prepare her for

TWITCH! TWITCH!

Like he had been possessed by a witch.

Playing on her mind and shock and shell,

Hearing from his mind “HELL”

How he and his soldier’s must’ve fell!

Into the jaws of plagued hell!

 

Sitting and waking up at night,

Remembering the cries of a fight,

Playing on his mind shock and shell!

Shouting from his mind “HELL!”

How he now wished he’d fell!

To the Devil inside glorious hell!
