The Airsoft Way

The Airsoft Way

By Nick Boustead

The airsoft war begins

I don’t know what to do

I cling to others

How will I make it through?


The bb’s flying

Dust everywhere

Getting shot

Not giving a care


The people yelling

Yelling at me

“Get out of the way!”

I stare helplessly


The middle of the war

The hardest part

I can see victory coming

There is joy in my heart


I’m rolling in mud

Sliding in dirt

Bugs in my hair

Leaves on my shirt


Near the end of the war

I’m feeling so tired

My gun feels so heavy

I’m almost expired


“Charge!”, we all yell

See the fear in their eyes

Shooting like crazy

They’re dropping like flies


After we won

We felt so triumphant

We crushed them like

Soft mushy crumpets


Is this boy crazy?

You think in dismay.

No, I’m just living

The airsoft way.
