The Battling Boys Of Benghazi

We’re the Battling Boys 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 and scaled the wall. 

We pulled 20 countrymen from the jaws of fate, 

led them to safety and stood at the gate. 

Just the two of us, and foes by the score, 

but we stood fast to bar the door. 

Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied, 

so we fought and we fought and we fought till we died. 

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam

but Barack Obama didn’t give a damn 

just two dead Seals who carried the load 

no thanks to us – we were just “bumps in the road”.
