Tribute to 37
them just fine,
gentle folks of modern time.
Put to test the true resolve
that made our country again evolve.
a number norm,
battling a firestorm.
Metal I-Beams, Rock debris,
Smoke so thick they couldn’t see.
helped those who ran in fear.
Saving lives as death drew near.
Dodging fire raining down
from the skies of New York town.
Thirty-Seven heroes high.
Names and faces that I see,
always there reminding me.
life so precious die
and leave us all so high and dry?
These folks knew the deck was stacked.
These folks didn’t turn their backs.
that I knew.
Thirty-Seven all in blue.
These PA Cops will always be
close to me in memory.
God Bless the Thirty-Seven
