The Revving Roar Of Rolling Thunder
Through the revving roar of Rolling Thunder,
by Elizabeth Valerie Wyler
amplifying along air and asphalt,
silent complacency's cast asunder,
by the tour de force its riders exalt.
On roads and bridges, spectators await
the annual coast-to-coast migration
of Run For The Wall passing through their state
in tightly unified group formation.
Reflecting our country's crossroads on chrome
the riders of Rolling Thunder emerge,
returning en mass to The Mall and Dome,
gathering strength as their chapters converge!
From Heartland to Beltway, we won't forget
the debt we owe the American vet!
E. V. Wyler
