Who Stands Alone

Eleven thousand soldiers lay beneath the dirt and stone,
all buried on a distant land so far away from home.
For just a strip of dismal beach they paid a hero's price,
to save a foreign nation they all made the sacrifice.

And now the shores of Normandy are lined with blocks of white,
Americans who didn't turn from someone else's plight.
Eleven thousand reasons for the French to take our side,
but in the moment of our need, they chose to run and hide.

Chirac said every war means loss, perhaps for France that's true,
for they've lost every battle since the days of Waterloo.
Without a soldier worth a damn to be found in the region,
the French became the only land to need a Foreign Legion.

You French all say we're arrogant. Well hell, we've earned the right--
We saved your sorry nation when you lacked the guts to fight.
But now you've made a big mistake, and one that you'll regret;
you took sides with our enemies, and that we won't forget.

It wasn't just our citizens you spit on when you turned,
but every one of ours who fell the day the towers burned.
You spit upon our soldiers, on our pilots and Marines,
and now you'll get a little sense of just what payback means.

So keep your Paris fashions and your wine and your champagne,
and find some other market that will buy your aeroplanes.
And try to find somebody else to wear your French cologne,
for you're about to find out what it means to stand alone.

You see, you need us far more than we ever needed you.
America has better friends who know how to be true.
I'd rather stand with warriors who have the will and might,
than huddle in the dark with those whose only flag is white.

I'll take the Brits, the Aussies, the Israelis and the rest,
for when it comes to valor we have seen that they're the best.
We'll count on one another as we face a moment dire,
while you sit on the sideline with a sign "friendship for hire."

We'll win this war without you and we'll total up the cost,
and take it from your foreign aid, and then you'll feel the loss.
And when your nation starts to fall, well Frenchie, you can spare us,
just call the Germans for a hand, they know the way to Paris.


 

 
 
 
 THIS IS A MUST READ ... THIS PERSON WHO WROTE THIS,
 SHOULD STEP FORWARD AND CLAIM THIS POEM ... THE WORDS
 ARE VERY POWERFUL!
 
 TWO THOUSAND ONE, NINE ELEVEN!
Two thousand one, nine eleven, 
 Five thousand plus arrive in heaven.
 As they pass through the gate,
 Thousands more appear in wait.
 
 A bearded man with stovepipe hat,
 Steps forward saying, "Lets sit, lets chat".
 
 They settle down in seats of clouds,
A man named Martin shouts out proud,
 "I have a dream!" and once he did,
 The Newcomer said, "Your dream still lives." 
 Groups of soldiers in blue and gray,
 Others in khaki, and green then say,
 "We're from Bull Run, Yorktown, the Maine",
 The Newcomer said, "You died not in vain."
 
From a man on sticks one could hear,
 "The only thing we have to fear."
 The Newcomer said, "We know the rest,
 trust us sir, we've passed that test."
 "Courage doesn't hide in caves,
 You can't bury freedom, in a grave,"
 The Newcomers had heard this voice before,
 A distinct Yankees twang from Hyannisport shores.
 A silence fell within the mist,
 Somehow the Newcomer knew that this
 Meant time had come for her to say,
 What was in the hearts of the five thousand plus 
 that day.
 
 "Back on Earth, we wrote reports,
 Watched our children play in sports.
 Worked our gardens, sang our songs,
 Went to church and clipped coupons.
 
 We smiled, we laughed, we cried, we fought;
 Unlike you, great we're not."
 
 The tall man in the stovepipe hat Stood and said
 "Don't talk like that!
 Look at your country, look and see,
 You died for freedom, just like me."
 
 Then, before them all appeared a scene,
 Of rubbled streets and twisted beams.
 Death, destruction, smoke and dust,
 And people working just 'cause they must.
 
 Hauling ash, lifting stones,
 Knee deep in hell, but not alone.
 
 "Look! Blackman, Whiteman, Brownman, Yellowman,
 Side by side helping their fellow man!"
 So said Martin, as he watched the scene,
 "Even from nightmares, can be born a dream."
 Down below three firemen raised, The colors high into
 ashen haze.
 The soldiers above had seen it before,
 On Iwo Jima back in '44.
The man on sticks studied everything closely,
 Then shared his perceptions on what he saw mostly.
 "I see pain, I see tears,
 I see sorrow - but I don't see fear."
 "You left behind husbands and wives,
 Daughters and sons and so many lives,
 are suffering now because of this wrong,
 But look very closely. You're not really gone.
 
 All of those people, even those who've never met you,
 All of their lives, they'll never forget you.
 Don't you see what has happened?
 Don't you see what you've done?
 You've brought them together, together as one.
 
 With that the man in the stovepipe hat said,
 "Take my hand," and from there he led;
 Five thousand plus heroes, Newcomers to heaven,
 On this day, TWO THOUSAND ONE, NINE ELEVEN!
