Air Gunner
Philip A. Nicholson

Alone in his transparent shell,
A speck in space,
He sits, poised in his airy kingdom,
At his back the unknown,
Before him the unfolding map
Of his journey.
Guardian of seven lives,
Taut with the concentration of survival,
He swings his turret through vigilant ARCS,
Eyes straining for the fighters,
Braced for the violence of surprise.

Thank you, Veterans,

With sincere gratitude from all Canadians
