The Trap

The Trap

We rose to the bait, and we took it
The spot is right here on the map

They called for my team to go in there
Too late we discovered the trap

From positions well dug better hidden
They let us enter that Hell

Now my Buddies lay Bodies ridden
With shrapnel from Viet Cong shells

We fought and we took some of them with us
And we sent out the call of Attack

And were down in the mud and the water
And we Prayed for that Med Evac

Have you ever been wounded or frightened?
Have those things remained in your head?

Were you ever a lone survivor?
Your Comrades left bleeding and Dead?
