Kathmandu Raga (WT 106)

He slept fitfully. The way soldiers always sleep on rock mattresses cradled against the surviving wall of a burnt out building. Spotlights of the enemy couldn't reach this flop-spot. There was a name for this war, Rattenkrieg. An old name from a century before when soldiers were flesh and blood, when guns shot lead bullets and not energy bursts. There was a name for real men who shot real enemies not these faceless searchers that fell from the skies, Sniper. He became one with the stone and the dirt, hidden, unseen.
