Ritual

by Jon Turner


He recited in the darkness
in the light beneath his breath;

Dear God I ask you to watch over us as we go out tonight, please keep us safe from harm so we
may return to our families alive, please get us back inside the wire without any troubles, thank
you.

and loaded his gun
waiting to depart
