Red, white, and blue

The colors are true

With stars and stripes

That are gleaming bright

🇺🇸

You brave men and women

Holding hands

In the far away desert sands

🇺🇸

Fight for the right

In hopes to gain your sight

🇺🇸

You stare at the glare

In the battlefields

Hoping to miss the nightmare

Of not having your shields

🇺🇸

You think about the tomorrows

On what the days will bring

Whether they be joys or sorrows

🇺🇸

I thank you very kindly,

Beth Malbon
