Answering The Call

" Answering The Call "

The fighting American soldiers who answered our need
they are all the brave men who followed the creed
I think of past history with a silent rage
as I give this thought for you all to gauge.

Remember the leaders who all asked that we
as the mighty American's fight for our liberty
all the America people they sought to deceive
the primary cause as to why our souls grieve.

We had faith and trusted all those we elected
we all thought that our rights would all be protected
we never did question the right nor the wrong
now we are the victims of this misguided throng.

It is not our great flag which is in error
but those giving birth who raised all this terror
they called upon us all to hold back this tide
our wives, sisters and mothers were left here and cried.

Some may have fled and shunned the plea
to go and fight this fight for our great liberty
America's brave soldiers are all very young
most have reported when that summons rung.

American's are to their duty so honor bound
just as strong as a seed is to the ground
we have never fought before a war of dissension
demanding from our soldiers such comprehension.

There has never been a war of such half support
propagated by such a political false report
so many have fought and too many have died
we are beginning to see that they have lied.

These soldiers return home from a war that is unfinished
and find that the honor of the duty is diminished
all soldiers will hate this battle they lost
both before and after who paid the cost?

Who is doing the fighting and who has died
who are the real victims of those who lied
who sees a faded glory in this wasted fight
all the soldiers returning in the dead of night.

Are we all so wrong to jump to this deed
by Answering The Call of our nations need
we all think not nor would we flee
if we are called again by this democracy...
