Bombs Away . . . Keeping our boys Regular
Re a sanative
As an ex-airman I can say
Advertising ‘Bombs Away’
Should not be a cause of laughter
I have heard of nothing dafter.
I consider it a waste,
Certainly leaves a nasty taste.
This advert I would call a fail,
In fact it is beyond the pale.
So airmen of the world unite,
Stop them talking utter tripe.
Dropping Bombs is not a joke,
Save it for that Hitler bloke.
He’s the one deserves derision,
Not our brave boys on a mission.
Nothing regular about a war,
Always ends with blood and gore.
So don’t make fun of our boys in blue,
Or the next one missing could be you.
