ON BENDED KNEE Part Two

I am a Veteran proud and true, hundreds of thousands just
like me served for the Red White and Blue
To protect all you Haters So You Can Hate America

Proud Parents, these are the "Role Models" for your children
Not a true word (BENDED), but it's fitting for the narrow minded

Kneeling for the National Anthem? I bet they feel so proud
what brave men they've grown to be, disgraced before a crowd
Some people do not realize, What National Anthem means
Those that "thumb their nose at it", insult us so it seems

Following like a bunch of sheep, the blind they lead the blind
trying their best to instigate, flag hunting soon they'll find 
Yet they'll honor flags of hate, and to them, that's okay
NFL and all the rest just smile then look away

Spectators are so confused, "I've paid, what should I do?"
afraid to walk out and be tagged, a racist Red White Blue
Our president the only one that voiced a true reply
different reasons for the kneel he caught them in a lie        
         
They have a flag they're going to wave, (the protesters) we mean
Their goal? Replace the American Flag with "stupidity" we've seen
Stop the "Anthem" coming soon, and so our Flag some day?        
Destroy our Country is their goal, if they can find a way.....
