Where are the Brave?

Where are the so-called brave?
Not the brazen body who crows for cameras
And proclaims this land as theirs ripe for reclamation.
Nor the type who tirelessly tweets
To repeatedly and reprehensibly troll and trend,
Manufacturing anguish and outrage
Out of dreamed-up dilemmas.

But rather the breed that stands alone
Tall against plastic peers
Who have long abandoned honor
Now displaced by forced fealty.
The brave are fierce and few
Valiantly facing fiery gust
With grit and gumption.
