Scoop Art: Soldier Of Hope - picture Lena Fielding


To that of the unknown
Or is it just meal snacks and meal bars
Warriors we're talking about
Does it make them crazy - insane
Or is it what occurs
Does it do them in?
The carnage, the angel of darkness
Predicaments, predictions and courage
A trinity of hope
A nice kid they said - so innocent
And who's that now, kia kaha
Impossible situations
Is that, what its at?
But meal sticks and meal bars

- Lena Fielding, September 17th 1999
