Those Little Boats Goliaths Faced

Those little boats Goliath’s faced
Commandeered and commanded by brave men
Who risked their lives to save others lives
So they could fight again.

Dunkirk saw the flames and heard the screams
Not since Moses parted the Red Sea
So the Israelite’s could escape from the Egyptians
Such a miracle en masse the world see.

There were angles looking down those days
Of derring do, manliness and romance
When those who had hope risked all for those with none:
Their rescue was more than mere chance!

The Little Boats that sailed the chanell during the evacuation of Dunkirk faced down the odds. Itwas a miracle the operation succeeded. One of those rescued was my granduncle Tom Reilly, who lost his legs and arms in the fighting before dying in military hospital in 1953
