The Eternal Patriot

By Mark Wachtler, 1992

When the warm summer sun, sits high up above

And the winter wind all but kills the white dove

Where mischief and sadness are the trend of the day

And death and destruction, the rules that they play

Who has the courage, to save us from these

And come to our rescue, respond to our pleas

Why a hero of sorts, is just what we need

And stand up beside him, follow his lead


But where can we find, this man among men

Armed with a sword, or even a pen

Convince him to join us and give us a hand

To fight for our freedom, our lives and our land


Who are we kidding, ourselves not the least

We don’t stand a chance with this murderous beast

He’ll strike us all down, with one fatal blow

And peace blessed peace, we never shall know


But it wouldn’t take much, to win this last fight

My brethren and I, we’ve all seen the light

We don’t need a warrior to fight for our cause

To save us from slavery, to break down the walls


We’ll do it ourselves, we’ll rise up as one

And strike a hard blow, for the warm summer sun
