The Flag That Flag

July 6, 2018
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

To the editor:

You kneel and rally against the very symbol that gives you that right

Yes it's truly a symbol you wrongly choose to demonstrate your plight

Decisions you're against are made by people not that war- torn bit of cloth

So use your voice to vote and your time and work to implement your cause

Lay off that flag the flag it's only helped you to live and be free

In other realms other lands before a ruler you'll be on bended knee

Don't personify that tattered cloth as a symbol you wrongly blindly hate

Remember those that fight fought and died for these yes these United States

Those of you that look to that flag, our flag as your target for your protest

The flag that flag that men and women have died for so you can rest

That Flag the flag stands as a symbol protecting you to say whatever you feel

The Flag That Flag has seen blood shed so before no mortal you'll ever kneel

Thank the ones that fought for that flag and let your vote echo your voice

Because of that flag the flag on election day you get to make your choice

It's not the fault of that flag that Congress no longer has hallowed halls

And that both sides choose to make the deals behind four private walls

The flag that flag need not be your target but those that make the laws

The system isn't perfect because those that run it are loaded with flaws

It's not the flag my flag at which you stupidly numbly sling your arrows

That you blame for issues fake and real as your mind slowly narrows

Those of you that look to that flag, our flag as your target for protest

The flag that flag that men and women have died for so you can rest

That Flag the flag stands as a symbol protecting you to say whatever you feel

The Flag That Flag has seen blood shed so before no mortal you'll ever kneel

So next time our land yes our land is attacked

go ahead and cowardly kneel

Because you rest in comfort because you know damn well our troops never will
