Stand Up America - President's Day Tribute-
Author: Marilyn A F Longfellow


Disasters! Disasters! One by one.
We watch and pray as each they come.
Asking why we stop and sigh.
No answer 'till the by and by.

Over stretched and over taxed.
Our country's back will never crack!
Wars, Disasters, Man made,Natural.
Rumors, Lies, Reality, Factual.

When times were tough they knew the remedy.
As leaders they stood in all their might.
Shining like stars in the darkest of night.

Warnings come from far and near.
Prepare to fight! Said Paul Revere.
But no matter, come what may.
America, GOD put here to stay.

Though down we are!
We'll last the longest.
We are the strongest.

In God We Trust

Nicely done Marilyn. Where we go from here is anybody's guess, but your poem is patriotic and we need more of that.

A Fresh Breeze

This poem is like a fresh breeze that makes our Flag stand out from its masthead, proudly displaying each Star and each Stripe.
