Undaunted, We Shall Go Bravely Onward.

An awesome fortress
An awesome fortress

Dedicated to Events in April, 2013


When our country is attacked in the day, we shall move bravely onward,

Undaunted we stand in unison and to say, we shall always march forward.

Though the enemy may wait at the gate, and the evil with all of its might,

Non more powerful and with a devastating strength, we will always fight.


When our nation is attacked in the night, we will brace, to repel the foe,

The greatest ones in this majestic race, no more bravery, than we show.

Hear this, oh enemy of this world, be prepared to meet your own dooms.

Unrelenting, our surge, toward the awful scurge you brought, now looms.


When the crows and buzzards circle fields, it's you they will be seeking out,

For only your remains, lost all your gains, will be nothing left, by our shout.

Fear not, oh people, our awesome might, shall see us through to the end,

The lowly excuses, those careless throngs, only ghosts shall now descend.


An awesome fortress, is our God, and a bulwork, always to be prevailing,

Now any foe, for whom we know, shall feel our sharp blades, all assailing.

Come forth now, to feel the wrath, meet your fate, the dealing by the just,

The timely demise, that the world does despise, all things bad, is a must.


Our enemy would attack us within, try to destroy our forces that defend,

The brightest inventors, the greatest innovators, by our intellect, to begin.

For every blast to kill, learn the meaning, of how their own terror is to feel,

Now is a time to pray, asking god, to show the way, knowing that He is real.



Written in response to acts of terror towards our nation, April,2013

Our enemies can bruise us but they cannot break us. This country has faced worse and we're still standing. Beautiful tribute my friend.

Thanks Bill, I hope that I did not spill too many coffee cups with this one, but wanted to show that our country will take on any subversive enemy and deal with them appropriately. Thanks for stopping in and well received my friend. whonu

We will survive. We will continue to be the place where others want to live, despite our warts and scars.

I find it offensive that an ad is placed in the middle of a poem that I just wrote. Why can't these be more appropriately placed?
