This is my entry for the Here's How We Roll contest. Before I decided to make this dish, I poured some poetic sauce over it and this is what I came up with. I hope you all enjoy reading it!

Military service, oh what a joy
Conscripted by the nation, it’s time to deploy

At nightfall we left, and at nightfall we dropped
Filled with adrenaline, we couldn’t be stopped

But my parachute was broken, panic attack
My comrades all noticed, yes they had my back

Private Markus attached to me, helped me land safe
No time for kind words, the enemy starts to strafe

We searched for some cover, in a remote house
The bullets flew past me, oh my poor spouse

Left her alone with my unborn child
Since that very day not once have I smiled

We fought back bravely and the enemy ceazed fire
I told her I was safe, oh I’m such a liar

But it was for the best, that she didn’t know
To tell her I joined the army would’ve been such a blow

I walked through the house and saw a picture frame
A little boy was smiling, oh what a shame

He is most likely dead now, for war shows no mercy
As I tilted the photo, I read the name ‘Percy’

Then I went outside to join my brave brothers
They were all so silent, for they’ve seen many slaughters

So we all sat in silence, looking at the lit sky
If only we were there, unworried, up high

A shooting star flew past us, time to make a wish
To be once with my family before I perish

I hope it ends fast, and I hope it ends clean
I really don’t want it to end vile and obscene

And after these thoughts, a bombardment took place
I saw my brave brothers, they all were ablaze

What popped to my mind was that poor young boy Percy
Did he suffer the same fate or was he shown mercy

Questions that don’t matter as the answers are in vain
I hope he or my family suffered no great pain

The heat scorched my skin, and it made me pass out
I hardly could think of my brothers I cared about

Oh fire, oh fire, what are you doing
Do you hate me that much or am I just assuming

I’m not ready to leave yet, my wife counts on me
As obvious as it is, it was hard to see

For I thought I would die, panic attack
Gotta keep my head high and get back on the track

As I woke up, I saw Markus’ face
He was doing just fine and was shown grace

He took my hand and he held it real tight
As odd as it may sound, it felt quite alright

He pulled me up quick, and he told with grief
That only we survived, I heard beyond belief

Why us, why us, I shouted to the sky
If only it was here and we were up high

We talked and we walked until he discovers
We were still holding hands like two caring lovers

We managed for the first time to pull off a laugh
We looked right above us and saw a white dove

Peace at last, or just a fake omen
Either way it doesn’t matter, it reminded me of home and

Of that boy Percy, I hope he’s alright
That he got into safety, and not in a fight

We now approached our target, the city’s High Tower
Our objective is to enter it and restore power

It’s a very huge building, the highest in town
If it were to have a title, it’d surely wear a crown

Markus and I , we climbed to the peak
I hardly made it up there, for I was so weak

On the rooftop was hiding, a shy little mail
I picked it up slowly, still feeling quite frail

When I read was written, my faced turned white
And Markus then noticed I wasn’t alright

It mentioned a mole in our task force
I then turned around to Markus of course

Felt the concrete, smacked down to the ground
Aside me a balance scale with blood I found

He hit me with an object nearest to him
As I looked above, he laughed with vim

“You traitor!” I shouted but it was too late
My good friend became an enemy of the state

I passed out and drifted alongside my thoughts
His betrayal has got me tied up in knots

As I finally woke up, I noticed I was falling
For I was up high, there was no point in calling

A person for aid, an angel to rescue
Powerless I felt, nothing remains to do

As I dashed down the tower, I closed my eyes
My death was certain, no need for cries

In seconds from now, I will lose my life
But no need for sorrow, I will rejoin my wife
