Spirit of the Eagle

The eagle's spirit does lead the way

Through struggles fought every day

Without this fierce bird our lives lost

A grand monarch always on display


The symbol of our greatest strength

Forever it will be our guardian here

Home of the free and of most brave

Powerful of its courage without fear



spirit-of-the-eagle


Those who seek to tear us all apart

Not any chance, from the very start

No matter whether all evil to prevail

An indomitable strength is not to fail


As the power-mad fraudulent seekers

Do try all that they can in to succeed

The bravest of heart shall overcome

Engaged by our strong eagle to lead


The bogus pretenders all shall go down

Their footholds slipping as they do slide

The spurious lot all will be flushed at last

In an appropriate hole no one may hide



spirit-of-the-eagle


The enemy are all waiting at the gates

Pretending to each think we are weak

A disastrous fate for them is held there

When all are destroyed none to spare


The home of the bravest American to be

Together we'll defend our land of the free

As evil to attack we have each one's back

Never an angry word or hatred then to see


This country is resilient always will survive

And our people will all find a way to thrive

As the eagle does fly so high up in the sky

We'll defend our nation until the day we die.

Great poem! It could apply just as well to Britain, especially at the moment! We have our bulldog, you have your eagle but I must admit an eagle is much more majestic - the dog is strong and stubborn though!

Gives us lots to think about.

Thank you much. My boy and I loved this story. We say the pledge of allegiance every day. What can I say.\

We are down toward the docks as the Carl Vincent strike group is returning. Such a great country.
