Daniel fans will recognize that this poem is a
take-off from "The Devil Went Down To
Georgia". Author is unknown...thanks, Bill
S., for sending it to me.
The devil came down on New
he was lookin for souls to
And he was in a bind,
cause he was way behind
with an Arab he'd made a deal.
When he killed our own on American
we knew it was an evil plot.
Bush stepped upon that podium
said" Boy, let me tell you
I bet you didn't know it
but we got plans of our own too,
and if you care to take a dare,
I'll make a bet with you.
You may have begun this battle, boy,
but give America it's due.
We're gonna find you no matter
where you go,
we'll win this war against you."
The Marine said,
"My names Johnny...
this is where I come in
I'm part of this bet
your gonna regret,
cause we're the best that's ever
Airforce load up our planes and
bomb those Arabs hard
cause hell's broke loose in
Bush called out the National Guard.
And when we win you'll not see
shiny streets of gold
you'll have lost...now the devils
got your soul.
The Navy jumped on our ships and
"We'll start this show!"
fire flew from their turrets
as they struck a mighty blow.
The Army marched across the sands
and they made an evil hiss.
Then a band of volunteers joined in
and it sounded something like this.
When you attacked America you said
"Look what I have done."
but just cower there in your hole
and let our soldiers show you how
Fire in the towers, run boys run,
America was attacked at the rising
Terrorism's always been a faceless
it's gonna be a dogfight, don't
The devil bowed his head
cause he knew that he'd been beat
and he realized our American spirit,
he can not defeat.
Bush said, "Devil just come on back
if you ever wanna try again....
I done told you once,
America's the best it's ever
