A grey cloudy November night.
The air was filled with "worry"
Few stars were out.
Suddenly a drone filled the air.
The siren started.
And the sky was lit like a Christmas tree.
Search lights scanned the black depths.
Picking out our unwanted visitors.
Screaming, whistling, and howling.
Words can't describe the devastation.
That was about to descend on us!!!!!!!
This was the night of "Hell"
Our lives would never be the same.
We have to be strong for each other
The tears rolled down my face,
Coventry was crushed, on its knees.
They had come to inflict hurt and pain.
And that's just what they did.
One night of terror, one night of horror.
The story has been told many times.
We ALL know the outcome of that night.
BUT the "City" and its people were rebuilt.
And we still ask the question.
