On May 5th of 2005, our President proclaimed a celebration across this land
Known by many names but the meaning is all the same
We celebrate Mexican heritage, pride, and freedom, taken from this day in History
This ultimate fight had taken place the first years of the American Civil War.
Mexican Independence Day, this is not; a celebration of an unlikely victory, it is.
Under French Occupation is how this came to be
Outnumbered and ill equipped on this date in 1862, as shots rang through the Puebla sky
The Mexican Army fought its best fight
With half the manpower of the invading French, a bloody and gruesome fight, it must have been
Stepping into the ring like warriors; they fought diligently, against an undefeated force
They rose victorious in a battle whose odds were against them
So today, we celebrate; every warrior, every fight, every bloody death that screamed, “Freedom” on that night.
