To the American Flag on Main Street, USA




 

To the American Flag on Main Street, USA

Flapping against the breeze

Or is it with it?

High above our heads

A symbol of

Unity

Strength

Adversity

Diversity

Home.

It is everywhere,

The Flag

Our Flag

On street corners, shop signs, front lawns, and school yards

On mugs, t-shirts, beer cans

Brass bands

Playing America the Beautiful

From sea to shining sea

One nation under God

Or not

E plurbus unum

We might disagree on a lot of things

Religion

Politics

The best ball team

(Though we all agree that soccer is not a real sport)

Still we love our country

And

(Most)

Of the people in it

And we try to do what is right

And what is good

And give thanks to those who serve to keep us safe and free.

Fly tall and proud, American flag.

You are beautiful, indeed.
