The morning drive time

As I was driving into work, I refused to listen to commentary on that which I will not speak of. So as I jumped station to station, enough was enough and I pushed play on the CD player and for fans of 80's music Iron Maiden screamed to life.

For those who cannot or will not listen:

You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back.
The bugle sounds and the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As I plunge on into certain death.
The horse he sweats with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall
We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won't live to fight another day.
We get so close near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds take my horse below.
And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body's numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan

Iron Maiden "The Trooper"
Thing is that I have not used the CD player for months and could not have even guessed what was in it, I just knew what would not be in it.Irony is FUNNY!
