Take a Knee
By Michelle Garren Flye
Red and White and Blue and White,
Symbol of long-forgotten bravery—
Of men who fought and men who died
For our right to be free…
To take a knee.
Salute no star whose unworthy light
Shines on the path of treachery.
Beware the stripes of men who delight
And celebrate their criminality.
Just take a knee.
What is a flag when democracy fails?
When leaders grub for riches at the feet
Of a false idol who demeans and defiles
All that once made us great?
No. Take a knee.
Take a knee, say a prayer
That God can save us now.
Your head must bow.
Simply take a knee.
Ephesians 3:14 “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father.”
Thank you Michelle. I’m printing it out to keep. Celia
