Poem, Cadence and Song!

By Sam Seal

(Based on the characters of the series 'Space: Above and Beyond', created by Morgan and Wong.)

Meet the Wildcards!

The Wild Cards think it's quite a lark
Their Honco's frightened of the dark.
While a cockroach lurks in the cargo bays
"At least he doesn't yell" Wang says.
Damphousse keels over with a thud
Crying "Oh, my goodness! Look - there's blood!"

Poor Nathan hears his Future Missus
Just mopes around like a wet Narcissus.
Hawkes head-butts walls. It's non-aerobic
But it's OK. He's claustraphobic!
And at each Briefing the Five-Eight's alwus
Butting in like a damn Greek Chorus.

"Not fit to fly" is McQueen's Lament
Sulks like Achilles in his tent.
Gone are his days of fame and glory
The 'Angry Angels' are His-story.
Boss Ross is meant to be In Charge
He's got no chance with the 'Cards at large!

58th Gardening Cadence

I'm goin' out to Nuke them Ants,
Stop them Chigs eatin' my plants!
Once you figure out what to do
Quote McQueen - "This one's for you!"
Am I right or wrong (your right!)
Am I goin' strong    (your right!)
Sound off!  (One, Two)
Sound off!  (Three, Four)
One, Two, Three, Four
One, Two - Three Four!

If you find your a rose lover
Kill them greenChigs undercover!
But if your wear Survival Tack
Black Ops weeding kills the back!
Am I right or wrong (your right!)
Am I goin' strong    (your right!)
Sound off!  (One, Two)
Sound off!  (Three, Four)
One, Two, Three, Four,
One, Two - Three Four!

Gonna dig up the whole flower bed -
Trash them Chigs 'til the whole nest's dead!
If you ever think that all is lost
Get Dug In with some good Compost!
Am I right or wrong (your right!)
Am I goin' strong    (your right!)
Sound off!  (One, Two)
Sound off!  (Three, Four)
One, Two, Three, Four,
One, Two - Three Four!

Don't ask the Colonel - take it from me
All he ever grew was a Banzai Tree!
But Ripley knew how to go for it -
"Take off - Nuke the whole site from Orbit!"
Am I right or wrong (your right!)
Am I goin' strong    (your right!)
Sound off!  (One, Two)
Sound off!  (Three, Four)
Bring it on Home!
Bring it on Home!
One, Two, Three, Four,
One, Two - Three Four!

Ross Sings the Greens . . ?

Woke up this mornin'
Found a Chig beneath my bed
With mushy peas for blood and
A big bubble-gum coloured head
I said - "Get out of that armour, Son
And get some rum in you instead!"

Woke up this mornin'
Found all our hope gone down the pan
'Cos that ole Fifty-Eighth had
Told the enemy our Battle Plan
So now I'm playin' ole Roslyn
Jus' waitin'  for the s**t to hit the fan

Woke up this mornin'
Found the Saratoga in a war
So I whistled-up the Wildcards
And thought to even-up the score.
(Mind, I just don't wanna hear 'bout
What the 'Cards might do for an Encore!)
