MY FLAG

IWVPA Double Tap Award for War Poetry: May 24, 2005
Awarded: May 24, 2005
Some folks call my flag a rag,
They burn it, even let it drag upon the ground.
I and millions fought for their right
to call my flag a rag
and gave them the right
to let it drag upon the ground.

Burn it, drag it… do whatever you wish
under the pretense of freedom of expression.
BUT…… YOU had better remember…
MY flag is my heart, soul and me.

God have mercy on the “assholes” that call
MY flag a rag or let it drag upon the ground!
