Flag of our history

There is no mystery

From our founding fathers

To our sky flying with pride


Decades upon decades

A never ending evolution

Carried through many wars

Being reborn in our revolution


Our flag has traveled far

From our shores to other shores

Under its stars and stripes

Throughout the world carrying right


We have sacrificed for its symbol

Others that suffer from tyranny

Once it was praised for its sight flying within their land

Being their saving grace by its right and demand


Many fathers and sons laid to rest

Their last blanket on their coffin it did dress

A final thanks for their actions

Demanding respect and a tear of joy is our reaction


My grandfathers flag from his casket

Not to be hidden away in a closet or basket

With my hands I build its display

A daily reminder that he fought for this land

Protecting my father’s way


My father’s flag from his casket

Another flag that I embrace

Again with my two hands a task

Another daily reminder he fought for this land

Guaranteeing my way


For God and country

Asked of them what no man should have to do

The ultimate sacrifice for the plight of others

Now they burn it

It just isn’t right


You don’t burn the statue of liberty

I ask myself why?

It also stands for freedom

Like a loop hole used to serve your need

Yet for its freedom we did die you have seen


There will be an awakening

There are more like me than you

Burn one more flag to ashes

We shall rise to kick your asses
