The Rebel’s Song

In need of a better name, true, but this is what I have so far.  This is an assignment for English 4 in the RPC.  A song for either the Rebels of the Revolutionary War or the Loyalists.  I chose the Rebels.


Slaves!  Our rights revoked!

Chained!  Wrapped around us – choked!

We fight for our lives

In hope, America survives

   Courage!  Facing our enemy’s fortress

Defiance!  No longer in distress!

We fight for the freedom

Of which are withheld by the kingdom

Liberty!  Give me such or that of death!

Freedom!  Chains broken; breath!

Independence!  Of which we long for!

Of which we fight for!
