"Our Flag, Our Anthem, Our Future" by Marty Griffin

WE SCURRY AROUND FOR IT IN CLOSETS AND GARAGES ... SEARCH TRUNKS AND ATTICS…THEY ARE DIRTY…CRUMBLED AND FOLDED…STAINED BY YEARS IN WEATHER…IGNORED

WE FACE THEM BEFORE THE STARS,
MAVERICKS, RANGERS AND COWBOYS PLAY…SOMETIMES OUR HAND IS OVER OUR HEART ... SOMETIMES NOT.

SOMETIMES WE MUMBLE WORDS TO OUR NATIONS SONG…SOMETIMES WE SIP ON A BEER OR A COKE…SOMETIMES WE TALK TO A FRIEND…LOOK FOR A PLAYER ... STARE AT A CHEERLEADER…
SOMETIMES WE GROW IMPATIENT WITH IT…CALL IT WASTED TIME.

NO MORE…OUR FLAG IS UNFURLED FOREVER…NO LONGER DESECRATED…IGNORED…SEWN ON OUR JEANS…THROWN UNDER OUR BEDS.

OUR FLAG IS OUR HONOR…OUR COURAGE…OUR SHIELD…OUR FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
IT'S NO LONGER GATHERING DUST….
BUT CATCHES OUR TEARS AS WE HOLD IT…CLUTCH IT TO OUR CHEST…OUR FLAG…OUR ANTHEM…OUR FUTURE
