The tragic convoy of unidentified people

leaving at last one by one their final plane
not yet having back their own name
on Netherland's caring and respectful shoulders
brought a bit closer by soul stirring soldiers

forty shiny black hearses crawl at a footpace
lining up on a for the occasion reserved airbase
driving on  Dutch emptied highways and roads
forty unidentified victims their heaviest loads

finally heading home after such  horrible days
nation's crowds gather along endless highways
showing and sharing silent grief and paying respect
after that deadly sky high rocket impact

the Dutch population is applauding with heartwarming faces 
whilst their most impressive comforting tranquility embraces

(c) Elly Wouterse
