Our Flag

Our Flag
by Roger W Hancock

Our country's flag, a banner heralds,
equality learned, equality seeks.
Represents created rights,
out of oppression came foresight.
Our nation's flag may not be liked,
but has respect through out the world.
Power exists when premise just,
victory came when right entrust.
The colors evoke the pride in us.
Patriotism; red, white and blue.
Right prevails when self, denied,
then rights for all are fortified.
