Pilots of Caesura A Villanelle

Fast from the flight deck of these lines fighters ascend On high alert soldiers steer Humvees as they soar The green glowing radar scopes fail to comprehend

An Iraqi tank racing toward the stanza's end Roughs up syllables and echoes the first line's roar Fast from the flight deck of these lines fighters ascend

Alliterating loudly on a bombed out bend Anti-aircraft gunners maneuvering to score The green glowing radar scopes fail to comprehend

Battalions in bombed revetments cannot transcend The consonance of conflagrations at the core Fast from the flight deck of these lines fighters ascend

Desert dwellers who saw the ghosts cannot append Infrared insignias to stories of yore The green glowing radar scopes fail to comprehend

Operation Strophe Storm lasered in a trend: Pilots of Caesura have dominion in war! Fast from the flight deck of these lines fighters ascend The green glowing radar scopes fail to comprehend
