I can feel the shockwaves, the pain, the cries.

The bombs are erupting with every innocent lie.

The citizens shout to their children, so far

Our new jealous enemy has really raised the bar.

The sounds of gunshots blaring,

carries on through the dark of night.

The buildings becoming firey,

create a sinister light.

The ground is littered with the loaded muskets of soldiers,

andthe enemy is getting much stronger.

We beg to have mercy and peace,

but the dread carries on longer.

Years later, the cries we hear are from those who recall loss.

The enemy really had the sense to show exactlywho's the boss.

To this day I wonder, while I fix the fire's timber,

how we ever survived, this war to remember.
