Favorite Quote:
A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson


I am not fighting
For America's wealth
Or for its business men.
I am not fighting
For three piece suits
Or the ones who wear them.


I am not fighting
For unborn babies
Or some love that will always fail.
I am fighting
For the principles of this land,
Of life, liberty, and the great white whale.


I am not fighting
For taxes and droughts
And all the politician's lies.
I am fighting for
The culture here:
Waving flags and greasy fries.


I am not fighting
For bubble gum pop
Or shots for flus and colds.
I am fighting for
Our lady liberty,
And the torch she forever holds.


I am not fighting
For stock market crimes
And useless political fights.
I am fighting for
Warm Alabama summers
And blazing New York nights.


I am fighting
For late night stories
And my mother's nursery rhyme.
and I am fighting
For Fourth of July's
Until the end of time.
