A FLIGHT DECK REQUIEM

 

Beware of jet blast, props, or rotors,

They’ll take a life, two, or three.

Keep your head on a swivel,

It’s a key to survival at sea.

 

The jets offer a sweet aroma,

The exhaust the heat of Hell.

The intake draws you in,

The call sign a name to tell.

 

A perilous place to work,

Next to your brother there.

Fair winds and following seas,

A patriot, you did your share.
