YOUR HAVE THE RIGHT NOT TO STAND (on Patriotism & Protest)

1.

Uncle Sam’s a pimp,

And all of us are his hoes

Making his money.

2.

National Anthem

Un-American lyrics

So Kaepernick sits.

3.

Remember the fists

Olympian protesters 

Raised for human rights.

4.

“American” means

You have the right not to stand

During the anthem.

5.

The “land-of-the-free’s

Riddled with hypocrisy.

The brave“were “three-fifths.

6.

Twenty-sixteen vote:

Can Mrs.Clinton trump Trump

On election day?

7.

“Patriotism”

Doesn’t mean “mute submission”

Or “blind loyalty.
