THE FLAG STILL WAVES, IS IT THE SAME?

THE FLAG STILL WAVES

IS IT THE SAME?

They fought to a bloody end back when there was a revolution,

Their fight for freedom was long as today they would ask what’s wrong.

Nothing was ever perfect from then till now and it won’t ever be,

I don’t believe the flag is waved today as it once was in a yesterday.

The stars and stripes are still in the same place but does it mean anything,?

Think of seventeen seventy six before there was an American flag.

There are many more today, the flag still waves, is it the same,?

Flags blow in the wind all over the world, colorful are they, what do they say.e

Competition and fighting over land has never changed, today power and money are the names,

It sure is scary that men of many emotions are in control of mass weaponry of nuclear power.

Money exchanging hands will probably never go away, to the highest bidder bombs make their way,

The flag still waves, it’s not the same, let’s pray that the world is saved,

Those men from long ago, don’t let their fight and sacrifice go in vain.
