Take a knee and burn the flag

Take a knee Hey, we aren't free Everywhere that we can see There's police brutality City workers, raise your fists And go on strike Milk more taxpayer dollars For all the perks you'd like C'mon, let's go block traffic We'll do it midst rush hour Show unenlightened folks Lawlessness is Power We can't forget that while we're at it We've got to boycott Israel They give LGBTQ folks there full rights But we'd rather see Jews fail Comrades, stand by to burn the flag 'Cos of the Democrat's debate Just one lone suit-and tie *** And all those whites we hate Then pull down your pants and go pee On the streets of San Francisco You'll never know how bad they smell The din there's louder than a disco So take a knee It works, you see Marijuana's legal (Yippee!) Then stay knee-down 'Till America's drowned By executive orders And open borders

So sad, right?! How many believe that a Utopian society would look this way. It looks more like “Pottersville” from It’s a Wonderful Life or Back to the future’s dystopian city when Tannen takes over.

Hey Gershon this is a wonderful write - glad you spoke out, perhaps some politicians will see and read it, the whole world is at war well almost, then terrorists filter through to any country, slipping past guarded borders, arriving at their destination, only to cause atrocities, violence and disruption. We should all take a stand for what is right! Blessings, Jennifer.

Yes, we should take a stand. Thanks for speaking up, Jennifer! We can do it without clenched fists, disruptive strikes, and burning flags, however. Thanks! :) Gershon

Gershon the disrespectful atrocious acts that I am seeing take place, the lawlessness, the injustice, the hatred and evil spreading is so disturbing. It is a very big concern and heartbreaking too. I will never stop fighting for what is right in whatever way I can. Thank you for your poem :)
