    It is insult to injury
    by provoking division
    under false pretenses,
    perverse manners and
    Southern impertinence.
    A constant reminder,
    a remembrance of a rift
    setting kin against kin
    seething just beneath skin
    A Jolly Roger skull and
    crossbones symbol still
    rubbing salt into open wounds
    honoring a peculiar institution
    instigated in infamy and
    inhumane existence.
    With constant eyesores
    splitting capital breezes,
    insulting and innervating
    all at once, stirring the dying
    embers into flame like Austrian
    Mad man symbols still sulking
    In disbelief that they have been
    rejected, repudiated and ruined.
    Yet, wonder why stripes
    have not faded and hatred has
    a home in those without manners.
    Swastika stars and bars
    smog misunderstanding skies,
    choking children of darkness
    while stupidity wonders why.

    So eloquently flowed, making us think about what those stars and stripes truly stand for. Wonderful piece.
