THE GUARD TOWER.............

THE GUARD TOWER……………….
Watch him now,, how many steps does he take,,
….6, 7, 8,, then about face,,….6, 7, 8,, then about face,,
Not much time for me to make a dash,,
Get below the tower,, then cut the wire,,
Then to the trees and I’ll be free,,
Quiet now,, here comes the dog and the sentry,,
Quiet now,, stay in the shadows,, wait till he goes by,,

Watch him now,, how many steps does he take,,
….6, 7, 8,, then about face,,….6, 7, 8,, then about face,,
Careful now,, stay out of the searchlight,,
Get ready to make the dash… Run now to the tower,,
Wait,, wait,, be silent now,, hear the footsteps,,
Where is he at,, how many steps was that,,
Snip, snip,, cut one wire,, snip, snip,, cut the other,,
Wait,, wait,, be silent now,, hear the guard on the tower,,
Snip, snip,, cut one wire,, snip, snip,, cut the other,,
All four wires cut,, now to make my dash,,

Listen now,, how many steps does he take,,
….6, 7, 8,, then about face,,….6, 7, 8,, then about face,,
Get ready to make the dash… Run now to the trees,,
Rata-tat-tat,, Rata-tat-tat,, Rata-tat-tat,, shot in the back,,
“damn,, I hate this game,, that’s the 12th time I’ve been caught”,,
“Lets reboot it again,, maybe this time,, I can make the trees”,,

Watch him now,, how many steps does he take,,
….6, 7, 8,, then about face,,….6, 7, 8,, then about face,,
Not much time for me to make a dash …………………..

As I read your post I had flashbacks of the 1963 Steve McQueen film, The Great Escape. IT was one of my all time favorite movies.

I could see the small guard tower, and the prisoner kneeling down in the shadows carefully snipping the barbed wire - then squeezing awkwardly through the clinging fence and dashing across the damp, grassy clearing to the dark tree line. Did he make it, or did the bullets find their mark?

Happy trails.

Where'd he get the wire-cutters?

Goof - climb the tower, kill the guard, use his weapon to shoot the other guard and the dog, THEN run. How long have you played this game? ;-)

to Marvin:
You forget that the guard tower is hovering 25 feet above ground on
magnetic levitation ‘stilts’,, covered with carbon steel razor wire,, and the guard is wearing seamlessly molded body armor,, made from Armotex graphite …
Which can not be penetrated by a sharpened blade,, if I had one, it also produces a 10,000 volt shock to anyone that touches it,, when the electric shield is activated by the wearer…The guard carries an automatic Barrett 50 cal handgun that has been bio-registered with the guard’s DNA so that no one else can use it…Plus he has in the guard tower with him,, a mean chiwawa which will pee on you…

That dash to the bathroom seems to get more frequent and take longer every time, doesn't it?
