The Eagles Call

The sirens made their call again, the battlefield and seas alike resent him,
The mighty eagle a staple of the gods passion and fear...full speed ahead,
Mythology drop your weapons...the eagle has made it's call again...screech,
No demigod stands a chance in it's oracle presence...only delightful defiance.

The sky shone a golden ray,the eagles wings presenting a sign of delight,
Alexander Alexander...we have seen it...Xerxes and his persian might will fall,
The battle ensued...the leaders fighting desperatey to please their
gods but one,
The eagle let it's unlucky droppings to touch Xerxes...the Macedonians have won.

The Gauls have made their demands...entrenched in the forests to fight Rome,
Caesar...your golden eagle has been shined to your liking...oh praise
ares and victory...
The eagles stance rode high that day...the Gauls finding their way into slavery,
Oh Sahel eagle...boast your great wings...I have found prideful
insurrections in your glory.

The hounds had been called....hades hell hounds sent to protect the
German cause,
The might of the eagle standing strong in the face of world invasions,
Oh what has become of the eagles facet and passion for
justice...instead flying backwards,
Hitler and the eagles collective claiming millions of lives for
supernatural causes.

Have we not seen the end of the great eagles constant interruptions of
world events,
A savior in the form of red, white, and blue...a status unprecedented in style,
Entire regions defined by it's influence and symbolic greed...terroism...911,
Have we lost our way to the eagle...or has the path been cobblestoned
for our walk through life....eagle oh eagle.

Nice work, Mark. The eagle is much more important to history then I previously gave it credit for.

I think it is, the eagle has been found important in most republics or democracies throughout the times.
