I already hung my American flag on the gigantic green maple tree in front of my house for Memorial Day weekend. I even bought an American flag bikini. When I saw it in the store, I was feeling patriotic and sexy. It made me feel like sharing this poem…
Our Pride, Our Flag
by Roger W Hancock
The American Flag means much to all,
opportunity for some, to better their lot.
Life in freedom the dream to live out,
ponder the Red, White and Blue.
Sacrifice of blood the seed of liberty,
responsibility to all to keep the treasure.
Fight or vote your duty is sure.
Pay tribute to the Red, White and Blue.
Bravery in sacrifice displayed by red,
purity of liberty, shown in white.
Justice for all within the blue.
Freedom colors; Red, White and Blue.
One star now for each of fifty states,
First thirteen states one stripe for each.
Unity in diversity is our union's strength.
Power shown in the Red, White and Blue.
The union of white stars on blue,
when flag displayed, is on the left.
Red, white stripes stretching right.
Display it right the Red, White and Blue.
As we read from left to right,
display the flag to prominent left.
When on the platform it's to your right.
Salute with pride the Red, White and Blue.
The American Flag the pride of all,
of conservative right to liberal left.
Consider freedom, consider truth,
do it proud for the Red, White and Blue.
