Poem: 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 the 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 till we died.

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam, but Barack Obama didn’t give a damn. Just two dead SEAL’s, who carried the load, no thanks to us — we were just “bumps in the road.”

Can you give me an example of any U.S. President, Commander in Chief of the forces of defense, who in times of trouble was A.W.O.L. Nothing disturbs me more than this, the boss was gone. People died. Then they lied. No excuse, none.

I was dusting a book shelf and "A'n't I a Woman," by Sojourner Truth, fell at my feet. I read it and started crying. I never understood until now.
