 Poem – On Lancaster Bombers

on lancaster bombers

there are gunner turrets

this is where gunners live

occasionally the gunner

gets to protect the plane

the plane does’nt care

and the gunner is expendable

gunners can’t work effectively

when 12 people are talking to them

hence turrets

they are hard to get into

they are exposed

many of the basic human needs are absent

a turret is a fairly decent place to write poetry

all things considered

so don’t bother me when I’m in the turret

dear

the plane will thank you

later
