Overwhelming Forces

The invading army came early;
Early it came,
With saturation bombing at the dawn;
Covering the dawn with so much haze
The haze blotted out the sky.

But we thought we were ready,
Ready when it came
For it came with lesser forces.
Although the forces saturated the ground
Our ground could not be taken.

We could move.
We could mobilize,
We could get about
And be resupplied.

But our weather scouts had been in error.
An error in the chill
And this chill changed this rain.
Now this rain was thunder snow
And on this error early we are snowbound.
