45.            RECONNAISSANCE

You bring fame to the gorillas in the mist,
Guerrillas with a twist
That can blend into the undergrowth
And Eagles and Bats must make way
For your Hi-Lo wings
That could land you in water
As you snorkel air.
You can set traps like a spider
And cling to buildings
Under the same man’s name.
Some break and demolish things
Others shoot and collect things.
It is a small band of soldiers
Grown as from toy farmers
Who spend their youthful experiences
In the local bush to the jungle.
Just reason your Father’s intelligence
To find you on His right side
Of the law of the Creator.
