10 Years on Writing.com

Today is my 10 year anniversary on Writing.com. It's hard to believe I've been a member on that site for a decade! Here is what I posted for Soundtrackers tonight:




Me playing Dixie (2010)


Welcome to the Civil War trails - follow gals and boys!
Can you hear the guns shooting in the background,
drums beating, Confederates advancing so coy?

Maples and poplars hide, Yankees can't be found,
the prison in that old barn over there-
can you hear the guns shooting in the background?

Scribblings for help on that cement wall never fade or wear,
cries so loud, the torment, the death is vivid in the 21st century-
in that prison in the old barn over there!

Yet in the distant town, happy dances to Dixie,
women in their Victorian best, soldiers kissing their goodbyes,
cries so loud, the torment, the death vivid in the 21st century1

Bayonets and muskets, gender and birthdate lies-
for Dixie, for Virginia, for Southern rights!
Women in their Victorian best, soldiers kissing their goodbyes.

And here we are as tourists, learning and viewing the fight,
welcome to the Civil War trails - follow gals and boys,
for Dixie, for Virginia, for Southern rights,
drums beating, Confederates advancing, so coy!



Today marks my 10th anniversary on Writing.com and being the avid Civil War buff I've been for the past 12 years, I want to share a project I completed 10 years ago.
