41.            SPECIAL FORCES

They are a small band of heroes
And servants of dark intelligence
Of a hopeful government
Who sign the deed of their work
In invisible ink,
And they know you not
When you find a knot.
Here the peacemaker must find you
Rotting from both sides
In a local or foreign jail
Under your own sail.
He must keep your secrets
And is your long lost best friend.
While he leads you back
And keep others from the pest
That could not leave themselves to rest.
