A FIELD IN PENNSYLVANIA

In a field in Pennsylvania
The heroes of freedom do lie
Their resolve was the denial
Of terrors futile try

In a field in Pennsylvania
The substance of which I cannot attain
Words do not describe the truth
But all of our senses feel the pain

In a field in Pennsylvania
Cell phone static still rings in our ears
“We’re going to try something” he said
As his wife bit back her tears

In a field in Pennsylvania
Bravery has found a new home
Together, their resistance consummated
Holy ground where their lives were sown
In a field in Pennsylvania
