Oh! I've slipped through the swirling clouds of dust, a few feet from the dirt.
I've flown the Phantom low enough to make my bottom hurt.
I've TFO'd the deserts, hills, valleys, and mountains too,
Frolicked in the trees, where only flying squirrels flew.
Chased the frightened cows along, disturbed the ram and ewe,
And done a hundred other things that you'd not care to do.
I've smacked the tiny sparrow, bluebird, robin, all the rest,
I've ingested baby eaglets, simply sucked them from their nest!
I've streaked through total darkness, just the other guy and me,
And spent the night in terror of things I could not see.
I've turned my eyes to heaven, as I sweated through the flight,
Put out my hand, and touched the master caution light.
