The Story of Joe


Humvee, Humvee far away
Keep my uncle safe I pray
In the desert worlds apart
He is driving with his heart
my uncle in a humvee far away

Towards the city is were they drove
God's plan will yet unfold
Danger lurking everywhere
But Uncle Joe did not care,
Savig lives protecting in a humvee far away

Explosions, screams, blood
the thought of not knowing still stood
when along the road
this tradgey did occur,
a roadside bomb lay on the curb
waiting for its turn
Along the road far away

Crash, smash, bash
the humvee exploded
my whole world soon imploded
Uncle Joe the hero not a zero
in the desert far away

He took the impact on his own
saved the lives of those along
in the humvee far away

Saving their lives,
they took his own
ungrateful servants
misunderstood
in the desert far away

He is gone, my loss is great
I will never forget this tradgey faced
my uncle is dead and gone
the silent hero

saving their lives, they took his own
terrorists are ungrateful
they took a hero from our mist
and from my life
in the dersert far away

Where he was grief now stands
his blood ran cold in the streets
as my heart starts to weep
like a child cold and alone
in my heart

In the desert far away
is now where his soul is to stay?
My Uncle Joe, the silent hero
somewhere far away

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
