The Battling Bastards of Benghazi

By John Edwin Roberts

September 14, 2012

We're the Battling Bastards 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, 'n scalled th' wa
We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,
led them to safety, 'n stood at th' gate.
Just the two of us, 'n foe by th' score,
but we stood fast to bar th' door.
We called for reinforcement, but it was denied,
so we fought, 'n we fought, 'n we fought, 'n we died.
We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
'n Obama didn't give a damn,

just two dead SEALS that carried the load,

no thanks to us, we were bumps in the road.
