Work Text:


 
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 pluribus 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.
