The Battling Boys of Benghazi

The poem was written by a MARINE CORPS Officer (ANON).

 

THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI 

We’re the battling boys of Benghazi
No fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell
Defending our country we loved so well. 

It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,
fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty Countrymen from the jaws of fate
Led them to safety, and stood at the gate. 

Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
But we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
So we fought, and we fought, and we fought ’til we died. 

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
But Barack Obama didn’t give a damn.
Just two dead seals who carried the load
No thanks to us………we were just “Bumps In The Road”.

So will this reach every American with a computer?  Or do we act like the press and give a pass to the incompetent people who literally sat there in the White House and watched the Seal’s execution on live streaming video and did absolutely nothing?  The Obama Administration obviously won’t be held accountable because we apparently accept Hilary Clinton’s statement, “What difference does it make?”
