Its true people have short memories
Those people who conveniently forget
the generation of those who sacrificed
so much for their children’s rights
that well-worn verse of remembering
has been tossed to one side
but will be dragged out again
by the self-proclaimed patriot
of that there is little doubt
mouthed over and over again
by the liars and scoundrels
wrapping themselves in the flag
as if it’s a kind of comfort blanket.
But we need to be aware today
the hate hounds have been let loose
and we’ll need to protect our own.
