MAJOR MARK

Beep boop

March the

Troops down

The yellow

Valley, in

Their shoes

And under

Rocks are

Homesick

Alleys. Tanks

And guns

On heavens

Hums lighting

Up the night

Angel dark

And face stark

In fact

We’ll fight!

Beep Boop

March the troops

Down the

Yellow valley

All the towns

Hide their sounds

And sing to

the babies

Nothing here

Face fear

Please don’t take our children!

In the dark

You’re now

Major Mark so

Stand at

Attention
