Did I ever post this here? Its an oldie I found on my FB, posted in 17'. Had to have been written earlier, maybe 16' ?
thinking of things I forgot to say loud
I mumble under my breath quietly
is red white and blue the home of the proud
at one time it was the land of the free,
now violence is the same hurricane
and shooting people a forest fire
front pages report the insanity
as the secrets wallow in the mire,
I pledge of allegiance to this my flag
as others choose to burn or ignore it
battered blood red it is not just a rag
old glory flies for those that seem unfit,
my land I love I will still stand for you
after this and more still red white and blue~
Seems kinda appropriate for me that I found it on my page with whats been going down.
We the people dont have to like it. What happened to political change through protesting?
Theres just too much cool aid to choose from today, complete with free sparkly samples.
