A Confirmed Kill

  The dream comes back
From a far away place
Another time in my life
Oh so long ago

  The small shadowy figure
That comes into the street
No one should be out
At this hour of night

  A flash of light
The swoosh of a rocket
Into our compound it comes
With such an explosion

  As shots are fired
The figure falls to the ground
The street is so quiet
With no one around

  Up to this enemy
I approach with caution
Only to find
A fourteen year old girl
