The book of readiness

Stephen Chinnock

11 September 2020

To be ready
I’d first take
a page out of that book
set out clearly
illustrated with action
by the Conjola Brigade

Those smart men and women
do not mince words
about the necessity
of getting the preparations right
they meticulously review, repair
practice again and again
down to the last detail
giving themselves
and us the best chance
Mental readiness
a fundamental factor
the chain of command
clearly understood
camaraderie boosting
the morale and strength
of a dedicated team
they are prepared
to face the odds

The minds of our community
reassured by the battle plan
knowing we have the very best
of humanity covering our backs
we salute their courage
their brave hearts
and say a thousand thanks
We know you are ready!
