"I AM The Flag"
Threads of innocence, virtue and purity, So softly woven in my lines of white;
My crimson lines are deeply detained with fervor and zeal, To fight for what is right;
I sail the high seas atop the mast of mighty ships;
I receive words of respect from a mass of people's lips;
I soar proudly, oer place of work and sport;
I bravely lead every unit when it leaves fort or port;
I am called a symbol, a banner, and sometimes I am called a rag;
The two of first, I justly embrace, but when called the last, my furls, in sorrow sag;
My stripes are vivid, and my stars are salient on a very distinctive blue;
My ripples in the wind, represent, all that is just, right and true;
I rise, in glory, far above injustice, tyranny and ignorance;
Amidst the breeze of freedom, I bravely take my stance;
I drape the coffin of whom go yon, of no return;
My ideals,m My honor and integrity, shall never burn;
Even tho I may be ignited, My virtue, I will never yield;
To despots and scoundrels, Who may stomp me under heel;
I will forever, majestically, wave, with dignity, tis fact, not brag;
I ever live in the hearts of a free and noble people with liberty;
"I Am The Flag"
