The Land of the Free

The Land of the Free

The Home of the Brave…

We bought what they sold

As they took what we gave

We watched what they did

Without worry or care

They hid behind flags

As they siphoned us bare

The ground which we stand

Is now dusty and bleak

A Land of the Poor

And a Home of the Meek

We used to be Free

When we used to be Brave

But now we are here

‘Cause they took what we gave

 

The Call

Telephone-Booth–Photographed by Tyler Buschman–

“Phone home…” is all that he said.  It sounded important, so we offered our help.

Others wanted to stop us.  I couldn’t understand why they thought as they did…but understanding lacks value when facing adversity.  So we adversed, through land and air and sea—two opposing sides competing for two opposing goals.  And in the end, we won.  We won, and they lost, and all was well in all the lands.

Until he returned.  Angry and vengeful and flanked by his peers.

I now understand why they wanted to stop us.
