3000 miles from 3am

You're 3000 mile away
its 6 am
I'm in my own bed
dead asleep
my phone rings
its 3am
but your voice could wake me from a coma
you're 3000 miles away
and its only 3am

The Sentinel

On the front line stands a man 
set
to give last breath

He walks in deaths dark shadow
brave
the sentinel

a keen watchman
fulfills solemn oath
who watches out for him?

Death of Freedom


(Nonet)



The heart of the eagle fills with grief
as she flies over our nation
and sees the death of freedom.
Her tears fall over all
America, land
of tyranny,
no longer
of the
free.

Short Patriotic poem by Steve Eng| Details |

Blanket







Rifles rattle,

Armies battle

On the plain,

Getting glory,

Grief, or gory

Colored pain.



Conscripts giving

Up their living 

For a patriotic bed

That is bag-shaped,

Shrouded, flag-draped:

Blue, white, red.


Short Patriotic poem by Jerry Stevenson| Details |

The Premature Death Of A Patriotic Redneck

Im telling you the Gods honest truth;

Mohammed is the Devils son. 

Can I get a big amen on that good people?

Who in the fricking fracking hell

threw that hot dang grenade in here?

May you forever rest in peace Bubba Ray.


Short Patriotic poem by LINDA JACKSON| Details |

Hinomaru - Japanese flag




   rising blood red sun -
   spatters mount Fuji as
   whalers fly flag









I wrote this poem to try to write what a country's flag might
represent to an individual.  I love whales and dolphins so this
is what it represents to me.


Short Patriotic poem by Abdulhafeez Oyewole| Details |

No Chain, No Charm

In Unison-
~No Chain, No Charm~

United we own
Firm, full of finest goodies-
Our ground of freedom.


United we stand
Firm from failure and horror-
On the ground of strength.

United we pray
Faithfully with open mind-
Our bliss is assured.

I miss the man you use to be

Im not sure hes still there

Courage put to swords!

THE EYES

The windows of the mind,

In the eyes I find,

Written in them,

Is a poem,

Of sanity or insanity,

Of turbulence or tranquility,

Of uncanny mind;

Of patriotic pride,

Of gallant valour,

Of bashful amour,

Of beauty of the Youth,

Of   resplendent Truth.       

 


Short Patriotic poem by Steven Henderson| Details |

The Patriotic Traitor

Cares he does for all human life

Standing for free will costs a price

Heavy burden felt deep in heart

Decision made man over State 



Majority rule, only fool

Born not a sheep amongst the wolves 

A shepherd cast in wolf clothing

By the wolves whom have captured ewe

Rondelet: Give me country

<b>Rondelet: Give me country</b>

Give me country
Goddamn my values and cultures
Give me country
I'll not die for my family
Devil take mother and sisters
I'll lay my life down at borders
Give me country

Short Patriotic poem by Christy Hardy| Details |

Hand Over Heart

Hand over heart, when our National Athem starts,

taught from a child, and we sang every part.

Word for word as the flag was raised,

remembering the sacrifice our soldiers have made.

Patriotic to the core, our Red, White, and Blue,

Americans be proud, stand , and salute.

Short Patriotic poem by Honestly JT| Details |

Lewis And Clark

They were Meriwether Lewis and William Clark,
Her name was Sacagawea.
On an expedition they did embark
Finding the passage to the sea.

Down the Missouri they traveled, 
Then slithered 'round the Snake River bend.
Rocky Mountain weather and sickness battled;
At the Columbia River they'd end.

Short Patriotic poem by Fredrick F.| Details |

The Star-Spangled Glory

As the star-spangled glory,

Flies proud and grand,

With the home of the brave,

Though hill scattered lands,



With the star-spangled banner,

Gleaming oer the shore

As the noble eagle

Stretches and soars



And the flag flies brilliant,

By mountains high,

As the crop fields spread,

Beneath wondrous blue skies.

Short Patriotic poem by Gary McCormick| Details |

Vamp

Hiding a hint of melody

In the free-wheeling ramble

Of the pianos opening phrases



Its a pitter pat preview like

Kellys singing steps as he

Splashes through a street of rain



Its a long drawn out unraveling

Of the tune on Ray Charles piano

Before he shouts out a bluesy version

Of our patriotic America the Beautiful


Short Patriotic poem by Heeju Kim| Details |

John F Kennedy

<center> John F. Kennedy
1917-1963
The great 35th president of US
It wasn't really a success

He tried to stop the missile bases
There were lot of angry faces

When there was about to be a war
Peace was what he asked for

Texas was the place he was shot
Later, the criminal was caught

He didn't survive the pain
His people cried like the rain</center>


Short Patriotic poem by julie heckman| Details |

To Fight Aloud is Very Brave

Thunderous gray smoke of war
No greater courage I've found
Those who war within their heart
An army fills the ground

When defeat has little honor
Those who died are never known
with dying eyes no one regards
a patriotic tone

We drown in plumed marches
and here the angels we seek
Line after line of walking dead
with uniforms of defeat

Emily Dickinson


Short Patriotic poem by GOODNESS LANRE| Details |

A Roundel - United

It is a great joy to be united
Hearts held together without division
Full of grace and unlimited power
It is a great joy.

The reign of happiness void of tension 
The sight of great minds greatly excited
Ready to obey in all submission.

Winning victories clean and unscathed
A mighty formidable men of valor
Laying off enemies' ground sighted
It is a great joy.


Short Patriotic poem by Timothy Mullins| Details |

Sacred Duty

Here i stand a new man
Standing beside my brothers 
We are an unbreakable band
With our God we fight as one 
By believing in the trinity 
Our battle's already won
We take it upon ourselves
To walk in the ways of the Lord 
Keeping our souls from enternity's hell
With the stars and stripes in one hand 
And the word of God in th other 
It is my sacred duty 
And where i will always stand

Short Patriotic poem by Chukwuemeka Mbah| Details |

PROCRASTINATION

 it's best done later and not now

tomorrow will be perfect i can vow

Why yoke yourself like a laden cow?

 

The cloud is heavy and ready to snow

Be merry with life and take it real slow

And in observing the cloud u didn't sow

 

Alas the seed dies with its great potential

buried with a would have been credential

The plan became an aborted mission

Because procrastination stole the vision


Short Patriotic poem by Veronica Joseph| Details |

Barack Obama

I remain humbled and honored

proud and patriotic

emotional

to live in a time when my president

is recognized

for not only his intentions

but his deeds

as the Nobel Prize committee asks world leaders

to lend Barack Obama

their leadership and wisdom

in moving the world toward peace and negotiation.



 Thank you God Amen



Continued Blessings for this great man, who has only just begun.

COMPATRIOTS

                       COMPATRIOTS


Compatriots , where are you compatriots ?
On our a nation lets pause a bit:
Money , money , money , money... 
Peace dying, children crying
All moving as if all is well
Take a look  at what nation has become :
Riots in south , terrorists in north ;
In the land of our births
Only God can say who is next
Thousand today, thousand tomorrow
Shame , what a shame !!!

Toby Keith, there is so much we owe you
for your song Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue.
Your country band backed up your strong singing voice.
The sound you produced became a nations choice.
Since those twin towers in Manhattan were downed,
the might of the USA was motivated by your sound.
Every man, woman, and child felt patriotic
once they heard your song that was terrific.

Short Patriotic poem by Abdulhafeez Oyewole| Details |

Spell Us Both

Betroth her to me,
If she will never stop amazing my spirit.
Bring her to me, 
If she will never stop beautifying my heart.
Hand her to me,
If she will never stop spoiling me with love.
Entrust her to me,
If she will never stop till she fight my war.
Leave her to me, 
If she will never wish for my death before the hour.
Send her to me,
Let our hands lock in wed.
Send her to me,
Let our oneness soul united.

Posturing for President


    <center> Passionate Pentecostal beauty professing her patriotic duty
Proudly portraying her Tea Party pride 

Posturing for president against democrats sour sentiments
Tour bus pressing on giving the media a free ride

Peering out over the podium Palin fans in pandemonium
Delivering an uppercut punch to Obamas left side!

Short Patriotic poem by Harold Hunt sr| Details |

I Fly

I fly. 

I was born a flag red white and blue in color. 

13 Stars And 13 strips. 

I have been in many places. But still fly for only one nation. 

I have seen many wars and been fired on and full of holes. 

But I still fly high. 

I fly on just about every building and many of home.  

I fly in some places only for the hero's that are dead. 

I bow to no other and will never do. 

I fly because I love you.


Short Patriotic poem by Gypsyof Essence| Details |

The Unknown Soldier

I stand at your grave.
I do not know your name.
I know not where you are from.
Where you fought,
nor where you died.

The horrors and pain you suffered,
were not in vain.
The death and destruction brought you pain.

I weep at your grave,
for the life you gave.
I weep for the Mother,
that gave you that life.

I kneel before your grave.
I bow my head in gratitude to you,
The Unknown Soldier.
Forever Remembered.

Short Patriotic poem by Saiful Haq| Details |

Grandmother

Grandmother By Saiful Haq:
Skinny Skin Bloomed with Wrinkles,
Overshadowing her dimples,
Staring with Aghast Eyes,
Expressing herself in a fatuous Noise.

Credulous to lavish promises,
Melodramatic to laziness,
Pertinacious in her religious beliefs ,
Punctiliously attending her colleagues.

Torpidly trekking with a wooden stick,
Very Prone to being sick,
Showering her blessings diligently,
Is the patriotic head of Our family.
