A Poem by Sirius King

i support the troops, i don't support the agenda that's putting them in harms way...


 Starting Wars with no proof
It’s the truth
 Willing to die
Without asking why?

Uncle Sam wants you!
…Giving up God given freedoms
In the name of patriotism …
This idiotic patriotic oath
Has corrupted the minds of most
Giving the government room to boast
Leaving the people with little hope…
Following behind our founding fathers
-Finding nothing- so they’re the biggest liars
Wrongly spawned, political pawns
And we too are forced to conspire
Shouldn’t we be tired?
The Red
Is the bloodshed

The white
Hooded sheets in the night
The blue
The sky, under which many have died

The stripes
On the backs of slaves, where the foundation of this country was made
The stars
Pointing us all to freedom, and reflecting the light of who we truly are
The battle is hard, and if we continue to fight ourselves
We won’t get far…
freedom is still far…

the poem is good and the title is witty, freedom will be gone with the increase of security, which is slowly happening.
