The Blue and the Grey
[A response to the play Grounded by George Brant]

Fighter pilot lives in the blue

Soars away, soars away
Delivers death at the speed of light
Looks to the skies, thinks of the glory
Off in a different sky.
Drone pilot lives in the grey
Watching, watching
Delivers death before her eyes
Looks to the ground, thinks of the gory
People in a different place.
Audience sits in the dark
Watching, soars away
Death delivered up close and personal
Looks to the truth, sees a new story
Leaves with a different view.
Ann Marie Thomas
