The Marauder

The Marauder

The Marauder's a very fine aircraft
Constructed of rivets and tin
Top speed well over three hundred
Especially when you're in a spin.

cho: Oh why did I join the Air Corps?
     Mother, dear mother knew best
     Here I lie 'neath the wreakage
     Marauder all over my chest.

note: The Martin B-26 Marauder was a plane with a very high
   landing speed. It accounted for a disproportionate number of
   training accidents in 1942, leading to a wing redesign. RG
