Angels in the Wash

BLM, Bundy Ranch, cattle ranchers, DOJ, FBI

It’s been over three years since the federal government tried to bully the Bundy family off of their ranch,  claiming that Cliven failed to pay grazing fees for over 20 years. The amount of $8,815.50 is the real total that is claimed due and that is over 25 years. In a recent article Trials and Tribulations: It’s Not About Cattle  it is shown that the entire protest was about rights and not cattle.

I present to you the following poem, written by a wonderful and gifted lady who is the embodiment of a true American Patriot.

Out in the desert of Southeast Nevada
Back in the spring of Twenty-Fourteen
A standoff occured between the Federal Government
And a lone rancher named Cliven Bundy

You see, Cliven’s family had owned the land
For well over a hundred years
A century spent making something out of nothing
Through hard work, blood, sweat, and tears

But the government decided it wanted all the land
So it began its plotting and planning
And before too long, 52 ranchers had been forced out
Until Cliven was the last one standing.

Now, there comes a time in every man’s life
When he’s forced to, either, bow down or fight-
And rather than let it take all that he owned
Cliven chose to stand against its might

**It was Angels down in the wash that day
Keeping another Waco at bay
Standing on the side of right
And backing Cliven in his fight
I don’t know much about Angels
But I’m now sure of two things
The cowboy hats hid their halos
And the camo hid their wings

While the government was busy building an army
Willing to steal, destroy, and kill to get its way-
Cliven was down on bended knee, asking the Lord for help
And listening to what He had to say.

The Lord, Himself, put out a call
That was heard all across the land
He said, “I need you to go to Bunkerville,
And back a good man in his stand”.

From all across the country they started showing up
Cowboys, Veterans, the average Joe, responded to the call
Waving flags and uniting in prayer-
American citizens one and all

They gathered in the wash that day
And helped Cliven stand his ground
And together they, peacefully, managed
To back the federal agents down

**It was Angels down in the wash that day
Keeping another Waco at bay
Standing on the side of right
And backing Cliven in his fight
I don’t know much about Angels
But I’m now sure of two things
The cowboy hats hid their halos
And the camo hid their wings

It could have been a blood bath
For there was no place, from snipers, to hide
Yet, those people bravely stood their ground
Certain the Lord was on their side

It was a miracle no shots were fired
And that not a single life was lost
It was a huge win for We The People
The feds went up against the Lord and lost

The feds were shocked and angry that, somehow, mere
Men, women, and kids, their evil plans could squash
But had they taken a closer look they would have seen
That it was really Angels in the wash

**It was Angels down in the wash that day
Keeping another Waco at bay
Standing on the side of right
And backing Cliven in his fight
I don’t know much about Angels
But I’m now sure of two things
The cowboy hats hid their halos
And the camo hid their wings
