Dilldog and Russell

Who knows from where
     the nicknames came,
Dilldog and Russell,
     and they ain't sayin',
Always the best of friends
     all their lives long,
Just two boys who never
     really stopped playin'.

Code names for all missions
     forever kept in secret?
Monickers in jest to express
     a personal familiarity?
Terms of affection without
     making masculine offense?
Titles of respect and
     admiration, a banner
          across the years?

Dilldog and Russell!
Bros yesterday, today and
It doesn't matter what they
     mean, these names!
To them, and them alone,
     and forever, it matters only,
          as such memory flames!
