A Verse Review: Heroes of Burke County

Heroes of Burke County


“It is the surmounting of difficulties that makes heroes.”

– Louis Kossuth

I’m guessing not too many folks
Would see this film the way I do
But it’s my blog, these are my thoughts
And this is my dang film review

I admire those who try
To do something that others can’t
I admire those who some
Would look down on as miscreant

This film, it documents such men.
They try to entertain a crowd
And while they are not world renown
I think that they can be quite proud

That they both came and overcame.
And yes, the whole thing’s quite bizarre,
But heroes are made of such as this –
Burke County Heroes? – So they are.
