So let me break it down for you again…
While you’re mad about a flag,
Bombs still dropping over Baghdad.
While you’re worrying about a flag,
Another family is around the table without dad,
While you’re tripping about a flag,
Syrian children don’t even have a sleeping bag,
While you’re red-faced about a flag,
Another veteran is home in a body bag,
While you’re crying over a flag,
Another child is short grocery bags,
While you shout hate over a flag,
Another young woman destroyed by rape as
privileged white boys in a frat house brag.
Still, you’re bothered about a flag,
While black blood soaks up rags.
While you’re focused on a flag,
Have you seen the candidates?
Why aren’t you mad about the options provided?
As you call out patriotic rhetoric about a flag,
Only a portion of the nation; less than 60 years ago even
had a right to hold that same flag.
The same people you didn’t want to have it,
You are mad that they don’t want it…?
While you throw rocks and slurs over a flag,
Veterans everywhere are dying at home in silence
because no one is defending them the way they defended this very flag.
As you continue to talk about this Damn flag
You are still in violation of constitutional rights provided under this same flag,
Shall I continue…? Yes. Okay…
This flag you are in defense of; is the same flag Southern States disrespected when they made their own Confederate Flag.
