To A Flag Burner
(To A Flag Burner)
written by: Paul P. Stefanowicz.........
I am made out of cloth colored red, white and
And I have a story I want to tell you.
I've been carried to battle by men brave and proud;
I've been carried in parades to be seen by a crowd.
I was carried by men dressed in khaki and blue;
They served and they fought to save the likes of you.
It is sad but in war men have to die;
and over those graves, I will always fly.
I fly over graves of heroes laid to rest;
Who served their country well and they did not protest.
When their country called to takeup the arms;
They came from the cities - they came from the farms.
You live in a free country let us not forget;
Give thanks for America....Give thanks to a vet.
To those who want to burn me, I have this to say...Just think of the graves that are far far away.
Some still may want to burn me it's sad but true;
Forgive them, for they know not what they do.
This is the end - the end of my story;
I'm still your flag....Also known as "Old Glory".
So Honor and Respect Me and Serve Me Well;
But, if you can't do that, then go straight to Hell!
