For America

by Jack Buck

Since this nation was founded under God,

more than 200 years ago,

We have been the bastion of freedom,

the light that keeps the free world aglow.

We do not covet the possessions of others;

We are blessed with the bounty we share.

We have rushed to help other nations;


War is just not our nature,

We won’t start but we will end the fight.

If we are involved,

We shall be resolved,

To protect what we know is right.

We have been challenged by a cowardly foe,

Who strikes and then hides from our view.

With one voice we say,

“We have no choice today,

There is only one thing to do.”

Everyone is saying the same thing and praying,

That we end these senseless moments we are living.

As our fathers did before,

We shall win this unwanted war,

And our children will enjoy the future we’ll be giving.
