|Prompt: Battle Field
The Fallen Soldier/ 110 words
By Lisa Noe
As the bombs burst in the sky
I saw as it were a stranded guy
Running across the battle field
Using his helmet as a shield
When then struck an alarm
As a bullet hit him in the arm
Down he went to the ground
He made a thud a loud sound
His buddy called out to him
We shall help you up, I and them
The troop of men raced to the man
They saved his life gave him a hand.
He was grateful to them all
The men who saved him from his fall
I salute you this he said
To all the men of which he led.
