Pledge My Allegiance

Pledge my allegiance to a nation

Who swore to protect from lack of legislation

A free world was the foundation

Equality was the aspiration

 

Civil war to free the collective

Destroy racism was ineffective

What was the true objective

If not to rid the oppressive

 

Look closely at how it was created

Laws to protect those who want to be separated

No act is done to help the discriminated

Those who speak out are terminated

 

Pledge my allegiance to a nation

Who swore to protect from lack of legislation

A free world was the foundation

Equality was never the aspiration
