The Unsung Heroes MAG
August 2, 1990 - Crisis in the Middle East
Hitler's precedent - Saddam Hussein
invades his Arab brother Kuwait
To some, this Iraqi leader is a beast
Yet, others think that he will reign
Consequently, there is a pertinent date
So do watch for January 15th; it is the deadline
For the United Nations Security Council to give commands
To the U.S. troops to free the beseiged country
A peaceable resolution, is there any sign?
Or will our troops be in demand
To grant Kuwait its liberty?
This esoteric question poses much controversy
For some back home feel that having our forces there
is extremely unnecessary!
President Bush will not be content with a deal,
Saying either pull out or face warfare!
Yet, who do most forget?
The American soldier who pays the debt
He or she leaves loved ones behind
to go to a foreign nation where they are "blind"!
Unfamiliar with customs and ways
Missing their families and special days
Bearing the desert's draining conditions
Holding close to dreams and ambitions
And so, a message to our soldiers:
Try to keep spirits up high
As the days pass by
For when you all return - you will!
The available position of Hero, you will fill
