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
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
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.
