Twas the Night Before Surrender by Catherine Moy
** Dedicated to our Troops **
T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the land We argued about our troops in the faraway Sand. Our politicians grabbed pork with so little care, While our soldiers risked life, limb and soul over there.
Congress was nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of another win danced in their heads. Our soldiers dodged bombs, bullets and suicide freaks While protesters hung their effigies on our streets.
Inside the Beltway there arose such a clatter, Another Kennedy crashed a car, its window in shatters. The Capitol police flew like a flash, But the Kennedys just gave them some cold, hard green cash.
Thousands of miles away, how could our soldiers know, That our support was more than just pomp, smiles and show? When, what to their wondering eyes should appear, But a half-baked report that made surrender clear.
What of Justin and Casey, once lively and strong, Theyd given their lives, how could it be wrong? Patriots fought back, called the cowards by name, Come from under your beds, have you no shame?
Now Murtha! Now Al Gore! Now Obama! Now Kerry! And your first woman speaker, oh, this could get hairy! Our soldiers stand strong as you cut off their funds, They leave behind their blood, as you cut, turn and run.
Stop where you are, Kennedy, get out of the booze, Our colors dont run, we cant and wont lose. Remember Sept. 11, and the radicals who pray, That they cut our throats and kill Santas great sleigh.
And now, as we look to the north for the miracle star, We get on our knees, and pray for peace here and far. We will not falter, if we stand all together, In cold desert nights, whatever the weather.
We love our men and women, so far from their home. This Christmas we pray for them, so they dont feel alone. We will stand by them, as they drive the enemy from sight, Then Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
THE AUTHOR: Catherine Moy is a columnist for the Vacaville Reporter newspaper and co-author of "American Mourning: The Intimate Story of Two Families Joined by War, Torn by Beliefs" - a book about our troops she co-wrote with Melanie Morgan of Move America Forward.
Very well-written. :-)
Merry Christmas, babe! Much love to all of you there and prayers for your safety inspite of the democrap in Congress.
Thought you and the rest of the DC chapter would enjoy reading this posting.
Excellent. This needs to be printed on postcards and circulated near and far.
Not too shabby!!! I like it!!!
One FINAL Christmas PING. This one might be the best!!
Catherine Moy is a great writer. Her book with Melanie Morgan, American Mourning, is really worth reading -- a perfect POST-CHRISTMAS GIFT.
Great article, thanks.
You mean I can't get someone to go get it before Christmas???
Ugggg, I need more reading material I tell ya!!
I could send my wife out now, but if you think she'd have more fun at the "after Christmas sales", I suppose I could wait...
You know, I am still a kid at heart...hehehe
No might be about it!
Thanks for posting.
Merry Christmas all.
Bump (smooth sent me)!
