WHY WE FIGHT
by Mac McAnear
Member Div. 4, San Diego
U.S.A. F-16 Fighter Planes in ActionU.S.A. F-16 Fighter Planes in Action U.S.A. F-16 Fighter Planes in Action
Too bad we have to bomb them
Kill them in a cave
But they misjudged, thought we were cowards
Forgot were the home of the brave.

A craven strike, a terrorist act
Collapsing buildings in a heap
Trapped and burned huge numbers
Caused us to grieve and weep.

Ghost of WTC Towers destroyed

But true to our way of responding
Reacting to this cowardly blow
Unfurled our flag, drew proudly erect
Determined to defend what we know.

Its awe-inspiring being American
To move about where we will
Pray or not, our choice to make
And for all of our thoughts no bill.

Well fight to protect these precious rights
Against foes no matter how
So resolute well march into battle
Our time for war is now!
