Americans - Poem by Gordon Jerome

Whatever happened to men like Will Rogers
Lucky Charles Lindbergh
Or the famed Brooklyn Dodgers
The world loved Jesse Owens
When he stunned the German Reich
And how long has it been since we all liked Ike
We had Captain Chuck Yeager
The man who broke the speed of sound
And Astronaut John Glen
Circling earth the whole way round
There was JFK and the Cuban missile scare
He refused to allow any Russian bases there
Lets not forget Neil Armstrong
And his giant leap for all mankind
Each had a spirit so extremly hard to find
We need more Ronald Reagan's
Full of their moxy standing tall
Calling on the world to tear down each unjust wall.
'closing thought'
Everybody has their hero they respect and idolize
You may be that hero in anothers watchful eyes
