Dead Heroes

by Shakespear1

Heroes dead tho still they live
Models for us who survive

Jack and Robert, Malcolm and King
Champions in or out of the ring

Soldiers dead on far away shores
Victims of 911, their cries implore

Bodies burnt in a holocaust
Babies murdered at such a cost

And who remembers their loss
Do You? Do I? Do They? 

Are We?

Aware of the price they paid
As they lie in their grave

For U and I and We
To be FREE
