Our Flag

by William A. Predeau

IT FLIES HIGH UP IN THE SKIES
FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE
A BEAUTIFUL SYMBOL OF THIS LAND
OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY

IT’S FLOWN FOR OVER 200 YEARS
ABOVE THIS WONDEROUS LAND
AND MANY A SOLDIER GAVE HIS LIFE
TO ENSURE IT CONTINUES TO STAND

WHEN FORMER POWS WERE ASKED
WHAT HELPED TO GET THEM THROUGH
MANY SHOWED TATTERED PIECES OF CLOTH
OF THE COLORS RED, WHITE AND BLUE

SO LET US NOT FORGET THE MEN
WHO FORGED THIS LAND WE LOVE
AND THE SYMBOL THEY CREATED
TO FLY THE SKIES ABOVE

REMEMBER TO HONOR THIS BEAUTIUL FLAG
EVERY TIME IT PASSES YOU BY
STAND AND SHOW THE PROPER RESPECT
AND LONG MAY IT CONTINUE TO FLY
