Thankful for This Country

I'm thankful for this country.
It means the world to me.
I could have been born somewhere else,
perhaps in Germany.

Since I was born in the thirties,
I'd have been in time for Hitler's reign.
I wonder what my thoughts might have been
about this leader who was insane? 

Would he have pulled the wool over my eyes
as he did so many in those days?
Would I have believed in his rhetoric,
subscribed to his terrible ways?

But I was lucky, I excaped that fate
and was able to see the truth.
I wasn't suckered in by those lies
to become one of Hitler's youth.

I'm thankful for my family,
the children and grandchildren too.
I'm thankful I was born and raised
in the land of the red, white and blue.
