A Salute to Seal Team 6


The Six Stages of Seal Team 6

 
(Anti-Denial):
This joyous stage
There’s no denying
It's all the rage
No need for crying.
 
(Anti-Anger):
A sight that’s relieving
It’s plain as can be
Yes, seeing’s believing
And the bullets were free.
 
(Anti-Bargaining):
The price was just right
Though the scene was an eyefull
But the bill’s paid in full
And that’s so delightful
 
(Anti-Depression):
With a shot straight and true
He fell like a tree
You gave him his due
That’s so plain to see.
 
(Acceptance):
You got him, you shot him
We called it a win.
They said he might live
So you shot him again.
 
(Redemption)
New towers stand tall
Where there once was commotion
But there’s nothing to mourn
On the floor of the ocean.

Adding something to contemplate as we remember. Thanks Ed.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 9/17/2012
With his great achievement, he sealed his fate. Sooner or later, he tasted the bitter fruit of his plate, served up with a seal of approval from all that could relate.

Well done, seals of justice. Well done.

Ron
