(We all dislike/hate certain words and locutions; here are some of mine.)
“We need boots on the ground”—oh, you said it again!
And it made me forget what a Good Guy I’ve been.
So I found an old minefield—“Let’s go for a stroll!”
But to see an explosion was really my goal.
And as soon as it happened, I looked all around,
And, well, all that I saw were your boots on the ground.
