Night Fighters

Black
The night sky opaque
A shroud surrounding
The pilot cold
The instruments tense
The eyes weary

Flash!
Bang!
Lights from below
Streaks of light
Illuminate the sky
Searching
Marking
A shadow!
A shadow!

A silhouette below
The night fighter lunges
The panther to its prey
Bang
Bang
The bomber's turrets roar . . .
The guns halt!
Nothing . . .

The fighter takes the chance
His gun's ablaze
Illuminating the gloomy darkness
A hit
A hit
The engine's failing
The fuselage burning
The aircraft screaming

Dropping like a stone
The bomber fades away
The fighter turning
Away from his prey
His stomach churning
Eyes ablaze
Hatred of enemies

Nay!
A hatred for war
To last all his days.

by Samuel Tapper (15)
