BALLAD OF THE EP3--By JC Langelle--(C) 2003

ballad of the ep-3--
flying over the south china sea and a long, long way from
the land of the free--
was a navy plane called the "ep-3", with a pilot
and his crew of twenty-three--
it was there spying on the chinese reds so americans
could sleep safe in their beds--
and if reconnaissance is the name of the game, there
ain't no glory and not much fame--
then suddenly out of the dangerous sky came a chinese
pilot who thought he could fly--
it must have been air rage that blurred his vision, for
suddenly there was a terrible collision--
the chinese mig disappeared from the sky and the pilot
would soon afterward die--
as for the fate of the reconnaissance plane with a navy
crew and a pilot named shane--
with its flaps gone and a bent propeller, the spy plane
started heading for the cellar--
the plane fell for thousands of feet with each crew
member glued to a seat--
because the pilot was exceptionally skilled, the entire
crew didn't get killed--
the crew landed on hainan isle where the chinese reds
made them stay for awhile--
the chinese president in the western hemisphere, demanded
apologies and drank tecate beer--
while president bush in washington,dc demanded the crew
and plane set free--
the chinese reds let the crew talk to an army guy named
general sealock--
who reported back that the crew was well after it's
harrowing flight to a place called hell--
from the plane the chinese took all of the gear from top
to bottom, from front to rear--
they got the crypto and the rest of the stuff and still
complained it wasn't enough--
with the crew detained the reds dragged their feet and
the internet discussions were in full heat--
chinese agents invaded in hordes and posted propaganda
all over the boards--
on capitol hill the senators were hot putting bush and
powell on the spot--
and if "sorry" wasn't exactly good, it was
something the chinese understood--
after twelve long days for the crew had past, the chinese
set them free at last--
and if anybody's got to be out of their heads--it's the
chinese communist reds--
