FLAGS OF COLOR

Charles J. Ingerson: Flags Of Color

Fullness of color distinct
reds, whites, blues
other flags too found
varieties of profusions
yet still the red of blood
the white of the bones
of blues lacking oxygen
no breaths taken again
hanging limp in the winds
ignored by history’s whim
these flags of color
long lost at horrible cost
fading into the mist
time forgotten so alone
never measured reality
myths and lessons
telling of the heroes
where came the colors
red of the blood
white from the bones
blues without oxygen
paying fully the price
freedom required
ignored but for a few!
