Patriotic American Poems

War on Terror

by Ellen Bailey

The terrorists want us to live in fear and fright
They say we don't have the will or resolve to fight
America is a "paper tiger" they all want to say
Her glory is over; she has seen her better days

Others in the past have made this mistake too
Those that have attacked our Red, White and Blue
They ignore our history of fighting for what's right
Of protecting our freedoms with all of our might

We believe people should be free to choose
So this war on terror is one we cannot lose
We are a nation that will fight when we must
Terrorists will learn this when they bite the dust
