How I Lost my Pinkie

Yeah. Me and my buddies--
the whole brigade-- it wasn't just a skirmish--
playing hide-and-seek with insurgents. Ripping
buildings apart with crowbars. Watching rats
run from the light.
Oh, the pinkie?-- no, not an IED,
it was a... chemical burn.
All I have to show for two tours as
an urban exterminator.

Up on the rooftops
Watching as the tangos dance
In fields of fire...
