Memorial Day

Freedom in America 

 Freedom in America

Isn’t really free;

We often pay a price

To keep our liberty.

Remember those we loved,

Who fought for us, and died;

And those we never knew

For whom others mourned and cried.

At home our “war” for freedom

Is sadly overdue;

We’ve let corruption stage

A sand and grievous coup.

No longer can we brush off

Dishonesty and greed,

Lust for wealth and power;

We can’t, we won’t concede.

Complacency is weakness

Patriots can’t afford;

We have to act on wrongs

That cannot be ignored. 

We must give up some time,

Spent on other pleasures,

To restore America’s freedom,

To keep America’s treasures. 

Money spent on trifles

Must now go to our cause:

Get rid of the offenders,

Constitutional outlaws. 

Freedom in America

Isn’t really free

It’s up to American patriots;

It’s up to you and me.
