A darkening flag
upon the steps
wounds the sky,
with desecration.

Our children honor
the valiant dead
with burning stripes
and dying stars

Some say it's time
for a useless law,
maybe an Amendmant
enforcing civility.

I cannot cheer
conflicted interest
Nor defend my heart
from license.

Ignite my dreams
with your liberty.
Make a pyre of my pride.
This is being free.
