Although I am a conservative, I find nothing whatsoever worth conserving about slavery or discrimination based on race, color, or creed…   

Old Glory’s
sad story:

Flags did wave
over slaves

Abe Lincoln freed ’em
South wouldn’t heed him

In the year of the Lord, 1955
in the City of Houston, to my surprise

Signs read: ‘No jews, blacks or dogs allowed’
Read ’em and cried with my own eyes

2013 in Washington D.C.

20% black illiteracy

When Confederate Flags today yet fly
‘Old Glory’s Story’ is somehow awry
