Deja Vu The War Of The Tunnel Rats In Cu Chi Now Fought Against Hamas

It is almost like a déjà vu from the Vietnam War
A maize of tunnels hiding death and destruction on that distant shore
Deep underground from air strikes almost immune
The war of the tunnel rats did not end quickly nor soon
The tunnels of Cu Chi were a huge underground Viet Cong base
Now Israel fighting Hamas is trying to lay its tunnels to waste
Like moles burrowing underground Hamas is using tunnels to enter and try to kill in the Jewish state
While over head its rockets impaling on Iron Dome in numbers do not abate
As the U.S. learned in Vietnam a tunnel network from the air is hard to destroy
No wonder after weeks of rockets the IDF needs boots on the ground to deploy
One can only hope Hamas does not have the skill set in tunnels of the Viet Cong
Or this invasion to destroy them will be bloody and prolonged
Images of small men fighting underground in the dark pistols and knives in hand
Tunnel wars are without glory only screams of the wounded and blood on the sand
