Creatures – Part II

We hid in the old tree-house in the park
Until long after dark

On that day we pulled the rope ladder away
From them
That night we held ourselves against
Their cries for help

Time it came our leaders sent
Our fighting men to die
Submarines dove down to the depths
While jet-fighters scoured the sky

So fast so silently
One by one first contacts were made
On that day young army wives
Cried out loud
On that day our flags were all
Hung upside down
