Thanks, Greatest Generation ll
Where did it go? This country we knew
When our world was red and white and blue.
Wasn't it clear what was right and wrong?
Didn't we strive to try to belong
To the legions of those who gave so much?
Where and how did we all lose touch?
When did the arrogant nudge the compassionate
Aside and offer a plan with flash in it?
Words over substance became the way
The new elites would carry the day.
'Tell them you care, and don't let them know
The machinations going on below.
We'll rule wisely because we're blest
With the knowledge of what is best for the rest.
We belong to One World, not the USA.
Ours is a more International way.
With superior intellect we'll never see
The old fashioned Red State morality.
Sophistication is the modern call.
United Nations over all.'
But just when we saw our past slip away,
A new Generation, Great in their way,
Stormed the ramparts of Evil Ones.
Fathers, daughters, mothers, sons
Had no trouble defining the truth.
They donned their uniforms, needing no proof
Of what was right for the land they love.
Putting our country's safety above
What peace and comfort and safety they knew.
Painting us once again red, white and blue.
