Died for Our Country

One look at his rival, in hope for survival,

the soldier laid down his arms.

He put on a brave front, taking the brunts,

as his adversary did him some harm.

He was beaten, tortured, and tied to a tree,

no hope of ever feeling free.

The soldier thought of his family and wife,

as his opponent smiled, then plunged in the knife.

He fought for his country, his family, and life.

In honor, dignity, and freedom he strived.

So, wave that flag proudly.

Salute that young man,

who died for us,sunset-flag-america-fields.jpg protecting our land.
