At War
Author: Don Fraser


The time was ninteen-forty-two
and America was at war,
We had an enemy,
On some distant shore.
They launched a sneak attack
Some how, we had to pay them back
All of America joined forces,
We all took, different courses,
Some went in the Army,
I was too young, they wouldn't take me.
But we all did our part,
For America, was in our heart.

At school every week
I bought some defense saving stamps.
At night they would turn off,
All of the street lamps.
Our officials raised a fuss,
But they did not want, our enemies, bombing us.
You must know the rest,
When america, was put to the test,
Not only did we survive,
On peace, we thrive.

i agree

Very good Don! I think this is about Pearl Harbor. I could be wrong. War is inevitable sometimes, but lost lives are impossible to forget.
