THE ALAMO

Every generation has an Alamo.
There is a little field,
I call Freedom Field.
Freedom Field is my Alamo.
This is where bravery took 93.
We remember battles in NY and DC;
seldom do we recall
the fight in Pennsylvania.
There a few men of bravery
showed heroes aren’t born.
They are normal men,
turning their back on fear
to face the danger
and confront the enemy
Screaming, “We know we’re dead,
but how many can we save?”
