53.            SNIPER

Those smiling eyes has a long range
From Green Beret to compass-rose.
You know the triggers of rifles
Such as the M-16, Draganof to anti-armour
You can switch the explosive
For a solid round
To reach over kilometres.
Under the name precision rifle
It seems innocent enough
As an old grandfather
Sitting on old explosives.
We sweat if he cleans
House and his rifle
As it seems trifle
If he pulls at the daisy,
He loves me and he loves me not.
