Hear now the battle marchers’ roar

Sending our children off to war

If not for them who will it be

That gives their life to keep us free ?

The pendulum moves side to side

It is a somewhat boring ride

And doesn’t variate a bit

When in the rut where it does fit

And that’s a lesson to be taught

About this web in which we’re caught.

Sometimes it may be truly fine

When one decides to tow the line

However that does not preclude

A change in venue or in mood

For each must have freedom of choice

So they may exercise their voice !

 

 

FREEDOM’S FIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/03/26

Oh would that we might see beyond

The hills, the plains, the mirrored pond

The mountains, lakes and flowing streams

That are the image of our dreams.

The valleys and the oceans wide

These are the pulse of the pilgrims’ pride

And of this nation which exists

In spite of danger that persists.

While enemies near and afar

Diminish every brilliant star

Hoping to hide the shining light

That has become our freedom’s fight !

When I look out and see her there

Our Liberty with greenish hair

So grand and strong reminding me

We have remained land of the free

Far longer than two hundred years

Amidst hurrahs and raucous cheers.

 

But now we are put to the test

To do what we know to be best

Thus save our nation from distress

And for the rest our foes impress

Our job’s ongoing, working hard

Protect ourselves and thank our God !

Tis said that life’s a learning curve

While on this road one must not swerve

Remember to keep goal in mind

Let moderation help you find

Those aims that you are searching for

And keys to open freedom’s door !

I’ve often thought how bold are we

To dream aloud of  victory

There is a path we all must take

To learn what values are at stake

We strive to be a people free

Oft caught midst chains of tyranny.

As winds of war rage fierce and wild

A challenge to each man or child

We’re wrapt in our leftover tears

And chastened by impending fears.

There is no way to make amends

With God alone to help our friends

Beyond this sight what will we see

Still flying there, old Liberty !

I often think no matter what

That I will give all that I’ve got

And pray that I’m much better than

Some mediocre protest plan !

I’ll stand up for the land I love

Her people that I am proud of

Her flag and constitution too

The honor of red, white and blue

I sure hope most will join with me

To fight to keep our liberty !
