I Am White

I am white 
born to fight 
Our army is effective
We're very protective
Any sign of an intruder
We're there with one manoeuvre
We tackle and destroy
And then we dance with joy
But there has been times
A new enemy has arrived
We've been taken off guard
And been taken down hard
They bad guys are getting smarter everyday
They recruit our own guys and take them away
It's a tough battle as you can tell
We work for you
We're your  white blood cells

Tanis, you sucked me in with the title and left me chuckling at the fancy "woodwork" leading me to the conclusion. Thanks for participating in the contest.
