I am mad!!
I know it doesn't rhyme, and it doesn't even have a rhythm, but I have to say it.
Thank you Ken and Nordigarden for speaking out for what you believe.
PatriotismPatriotism is not wrapping ourselves in a flag
or singing a song of praises
just because it's where you were born
Not about how many wars it's fought
How many people it's killed
Or for how many guns its people have
Nor how tough those people think they are.
A Country with a leader who sneered at Prisoners of War
Who rallied against the poor, to give to the rich
That's a leader, who doesn't give a damn about the red white and blue
he's supposed to stand for.
His color is GOLD
A leader who leads his country by rally speeches, press events,
and 15 tweets attacking the NFL protesters
Who arrests protesters in wheel chairs because they plead
to keep their health care
That's not a Country I can pledge allegiance for.
I have no country I call my own
But I have admired many people where I have lived
A Country is about its people and their courage
to stand for what is right and fair.
An Anthem is just a song
For which no one has to stand up for.
