Words for MY COUNTRY
By: Dale Crum
My Country is called AMERICA… the Land of the FREE and the Home of the BRAVE… My Precious FLAG is RED; dyed in the most costly pigment on planet earth… millions of gallons of rich royal crimson blood… Freely spilled from the hearts of the bravest men, and women our fair land had to offer… and WHITE… the color of blank pages of great hopeful anticipation, for the next wondrous chapters of our grand history yet to be written… and Blessed BLUE… the hallowed Star-filled night sky looming over us all… The indigo heavens which the fallen last looked upon… through blood flooded eyes… whispering brave cries of love… knowing the sparkling kisses of these same fading stars… tenderly cloak their loved ones back home… for whom they willing laid down their precious lives… TRUEST PATRIOTS ONE AND ALL!
I DO THIS DAY CREATE THIS PIECE IN HONOR OF THEE!
WOE BE UNTO ALL those who would to denigrate, defile, and slander one drop of their blessed crimson flow… mistake not our pause… as a sign of weakness or of falling… but as a time of prayer and calling… unto the One who forged this land of Blessing, of Protection, of Freedom… for we have been faithful guardians over planet earth… the strong arm of bravery when tyrants sought to oppress… What color flag is it that bludgeoned eyes long to see rise ore the burning horizons of a million scorched hills? Tis the Red, and the White, and Star Kissed Blue! None other flag has given such great hope… none other flag has rescued more prisoners… none other flag has paid such a horrible price… none other flag but mine.
Buzzard Fools are circling my flag this darkening day… smelling the air for the stench of death… brushing my sacred banner all too closely… roosting in trees rooted in treasonous bloated bellies… BUT HEAR ME WELL YE COWARDS… THIS EAGLE IS NOT BROKEN… SHE STILL SOARS… AND NOW ROARS OUT HER WARNING… HERE AND NOW… AND FOREVER MORE! SHE IS AMERICA… AND SHE IS MY COUNTRY!
