    Not This Time

    They gathered in the 60s
    And Old Glory burned and tore
    With all their hollow slogans such as
    ˜Lets make love, not war".

    They took for granted freedoms
    Struggled for in every clime.
    But as their sequel gathers steam
    We are saying ˜Not this time".

    Peaceniks still don't grasp the irony
    As they demand free speech.
    Atop soapboxes, with bullhorns
    They curse and mock and preach.

    And in our country thats their right
    It was earned in blood and grime.
    Secured by men they tried to shame
    But not now, not this time.

    Perhaps someone can tell me why
    When marching on for peace
    These protesters bring cans of paint
    And beat upon police?

    Their anti-war activities
    Bought and paid by foreign dime,
    They used to go unchallenged,
    But we promise - not this time.

    They assaulted soldiers coming home
    With curse words, spit and worse.
    All done, its claimed, in search of peace
    No matter how perverse.

    With Fonda, Kerry, Ramsey Clark,
    And others past their prime,
    They hope to relive glory days.
    But hold on, not this time.

    Their signs laced with profanity,
    With swastikas and threats.
    Parading by with coffins
    Showing no signs of regret.

    Demonstrating outside hospitals
    With signs like "Maimed for Lies".
    Well, free speech is a two-way street
    You've got company this time.

    Outside the Capitol, perhaps
    Is where these types belong.
    But treading on such sacred ground
    Is insolent and wrong.

    They won't disturb memorials,
    Or other spots sublime.
    They've damaged several in the past,
    But trust me, not this time.

    So on March 17th around
    The Wall we will be lined.
    Ensuring reverence does prevail,
    No monuments maligned.

    We'll peacefully assemble,
    And we'll tolerate no crime.
    Forty years ago they marched alone,
    Forget it - not this time.
