The Flag.

What a beautiful Flag that waves -

O’er this nation of inequality that so strongly imprisons its citizens.


The red;

Like the blood which covers our streets,

Spilled by the violence of our police.


The white;

Like a reminder of the race which controls this country,

Denying all other people entree.


The blue.

Like a metaphor for the trust that has been shattered,

From the countless lies that have been scattered.


What a beautiful Flag that symbolizes our pain -

The land of the free and the home of the brave.
