Invader you call him, this true native son?
When enemies threatened he took up the gun.
His father before him โ€” his father before โ€”
His father before him โ€” they went off to war.

And there in lands foreign these fathers and sons,
They fought the invader โ€” they silenced his guns.
Those men who lie buried far over the sea,
Those fathers and sons, died for you โ€” and for me.

โ€” D.N. Oโ€™Brien
