Makeshift Patriot

Makeshift Patriot

Sage Francis

In this song, Sage gives his thoughts and reactions to the 9/11 terror attacks. He wrote the song after his visit to Ground Zero five days after the attack. Along with narrating some of the actual events of the day, he also critiques the media’s coverage of the events and is also critical of the incredibly high amount of patriotism felt by the American public in the wake of the attacks. This song was released on a month after the attacks on October 11, 2001.
