Would I die
give my life
for what is right
or hide behind
blind shades
while my
brother/sister/mother/father
is
oppressed/suppressed/depressed/
down pressed

and raped and redressed
into another migraine
head/heart ache
we call
AM-er-I-can patriotism?
covering their
blue/black beaten hearts
and recitin'
existence antithetical
anthems not knowing/
wanting to know/or don't
know how to get the point
that the flag is
just that a flag /
Uncle Sams diaper holding
a lot of **** that some eat
when some

"...we pledge allegiance to the
flag of..."

would I die
to prevent my
brother/sister/mother/father
from further signing
their mental state
away to become number
51...

who wants to write the eulogy
I ask?
