In Our Backyards

They are fighting a new war

Not on some foreign shore

But in our own backyard

In Joplin and Tuscalosa and

So many places

Hit by this enemy

Stronger than an arsenal of guns

Perhaps?

Two hundred a mile hour winds

Can destroy

Lives, building

Anything in its path

And now the heros

Begin to emerge

Heros who risked their lives

Saving and protecting others.

Happy Memorial day we utter

But lets remember those who

Are fighting this war

In Our backyards.
