Mark I. Kirkmeyer

I STAND ACCUSED

Today I was accused
Of being unpatriotic
Because I won’t bang my chest
Or wave the flag on a little stick
I stand accused

For our nation’s glorious victory
I do not stand and cheer
‘cause for those who will bear the scars
I shed Wild Eye’s Cody tear
I stand accused

When I say we need to be alert
Our rights are under attack
My accusers laugh and say
I’m on crack
I stand accused

I am unpatriotic
I take my oath to be a duty of honor
Defend the Constitution
From enemies foreign and domestic with valor
I stand accused
