Ode to the men of 506th; 101st Div.

"We stand alone;

Falling from sky, watching damn

Tracer lights,

Coming-up; to us-done, like trees,

reaching the sun,

"We stand alone"; at dark, extending

Air-borne blanket...to cover all flank!

Holding position, each and every-one,

Me, and my tommy-gun,

Lone gray-wolf; "we stand alone"

Council! The chief has called,

For us to stall,

To stand-still, to bullying, strange-

Buffalloes; with head-steel,

"We stand alone"; under rain, snow cold,

Blossom to unfold,

Spreading, wild seeds, all over,

Normandee; grand warriors; The Cherokee,

"We stand alone"; to fix, the unfix,

We, soldiers, brave men; The great Cherokee.
