I Pledge Allegiance

a solemn vow of obedience,
from the earliest age of grievance,
when found deliverance,
one people, united against,
tyranny and intolerance,
become the model,
of democracy and tolerance

To The Flag

the symbol of once colonization,
come together in celebration,
a new unconquerable nation,
a successful castration,
of oppression and dictation

Of The United States Of America

a conglomeration,
of peoples,
form one nation
coast to coast,
a single relation,
one voice, one oration,
tread on me, expect retaliation

And To The Republic

a democracy, its creation,
the Constitution, its foundation,
agreeable to all, in origination,
fiercely guarded against demolition,
militarization, and impregnation
over all these years, still on station

For Which It Stands

the protector, of all oppressed lands,
the world over, she lends a hand,
her signature, her blood, in foreign sand

One Nation

from sea to sea,
whether rich or poor,
some vocal, others, chose to ignore
those who guard the shore,
those who knock on heavens door,
one nation,
esprit de corps

Under God

in a time, when belief was strong,
today, should not be wrong,
having been with us, so very long,
a few may sing, a different song,
most will believe, as they have, all along

Indivisible

one as a whole number, cannot be divided, by any other,
many have tried, under guise, of brother,
only to be denied, by the mother

With Liberty And Justice For All

the means, to end, all oppression,
infinitely wrong with transgression,
succession, regression,
and repression along

Our Pledge of Allegiance

a pledge of a nation,
a history profound,
one indivisible number,
all it takes,
to be, no longer allowed

Those in the OVAL OFFICE and in CONGRESS like the whole nation should pledge to this "Pledge Of Allegiance".

Thank You for standing to honor our country.

In admiration,
