Pledge Of Allegiance, Revisited 

By Mac McGovern

I Pledge Allegiance

a solemn vow of obedience,
from the earliest age of grievance,
when found deliverance,
one people, united against tyranny and intolerance,
become the model of democracy and tolerance.

To The Flag

the symbol of once colonization,
come together in celebration,
a new unconquerable nation,
a successful castration,
of oppression and dictation.

Of The United States Of America

a conglomeration of people
form one nation coast to coast,
a single relation,
one voice, one oration,
tread on me, expect retaliation

And To The Republic

MemorialDayFlaga democracy, its creation,
the Constitution, its foundation,
agreeable to all, in origination,
fiercely guarded against demolition,
militarization, and impregnation,
over all these years, still on station.

For Which It Stands

the protector, of all oppressed lands,
the world over, she lends a hand,
her signature, her blood, in foreign sand

One Nation

from sea to sea,
whether rich or poor,
some vocal, others, chose to ignore
those who guard the shore,
those who knock on heavens door,
one nation, esprit de corps.

Under God

in a time, when belief was strong,
today, should not be wrong,
having been with us so very long,
a few may sing a different song,
most will believe, as they have, all along

Indivisible

one as a whole number, cannot be divided, by any other,
many have tried, under guise, of brother,
only to be denied, by the mother

With Liberty And Justice For All

the means to end all oppression,
infinitely wrong with transgression,
succession, regression,
and repression along

Our Pledge of Allegiance

a pledge of a nation,
a history profound,
one indivisible number,
all it takes,
to be, no longer allowed
