I’m thinking about

a coffin draped in an American flag

A fallen soldier & his widow in black

His children grieving over a father

they can’t bring back

Oh it breaks my heart, makes me so mad

That people who don’t have the first clue

about sacrifice like that

treat our heroes w/contempt

& our banner like a rag
