Misunderstood

Sounds and sights in the city below, a buzz, a blur- as bewilderment stirs.

A turbulent crowd screaming on down while rotor blades turn- the air outside churns, turbines adding to chaos.

Shots fired, shots fired!

Evasive action is taken, flares and fireworks mistaken- bursting in air, the door gunner loosens his weapon.

Victory, one nil- a celebration terminated with hail.
