  • Old Glory’s stripes of red and white will wave
    How long? Our freedom lasted now so far,
    But God forbid we lose what we have saved,
    Then we will see extinguished fifty stars.
    Some say we’re strong, there’s nothing that can harm;
    The power earned in early wars won’t wane.
    The need to call the soldiers from afar
    Will lead the issues voiced in all campaigns.
    If enemies defeat us, don’t complain.
    Until we find a way to replace war,
    The young must die so freedom will remain
    Or flags of stars and stripes will wave no more.
    Great nations time decrees will rise and fall.
    The trick? Delay the downslide to a crawl.
