HIGH LEATHER BOOTS SMASHING GRAVEL  ALONG THE WIRE

WEAPONS OF WAR AT THE READY

HELL-HOUNDS AT THEIR SIDE

THE RYTHYM OF THE SEARCHLIGHTS

AND THE STARK TOWERS OVERLOOKING THE MINEFIELDS

MAKE ME AFRAID.....

WILL THEY CATCH US?

WILL THEY FIND IT?

WHOSE LUGGAGE WILL THEY SEARCH?

 

LINE UP!

NO LAUGHING!

PASSPORTS READY!

 

IN THE GUARDHOUSE WE WAIT

FEARFUL FOR OUR CONTRABAND

THROUGH AN OPEN DOOR I SEE

THE GLOW AND FLICKER OF A TV

AND ABOVE SLUMBERING BOOTS PROPPED ON A DESK

THE IMAGE OF THE LEADER

GLOWERS BALEFULLY...
