Student Patriots at USA Patriotism!

Freedom From Their Lives

Boom, Boom, Boom. The sky darkens above him.
The footsteps of soldiers attack the ground,
The smell of gunpowder thick in the air.
Boom, Boom, Boom. The soldiers all lay dead,
The bodies covered in white, dog tags taken away.
Shells of former soldiers arranged like boxes on a train.
Boom, Boom, Boom. The bodies are stacked one by one,
Families crying and caskets closing.
Brothers lost and fathers missed.
Boom, Boom, Boom. The flag stretched across the coffin,
The tombstone engraved with the words Freedom, Liberty, Justice.
The price to pay was his life.
Boom, Boom, Boom. The sound of taps fills the air
The guns go off. Boom, Boom, Boom.
