“Take it Down”

Confed flagThe soul of wrong where hatred hangs still casts

its banners bright recall a history

forgetful of its emblem’s ugly past.

Embrace a theme that cause more souls to bleed.

Oh, Mother E., your hearts embraced this man

and all the people said “Amen…amen…”

Yet, still, this slave to murder had a plan

where oft this flag of hatred stirs the wind.

Past banners Charleston carried  in her state

cannot rewrite her history again.

Yet still it waves, this memory of hate.

Where stirs this flag,  nine sorrows do I see.

The South’s Avenger has a change of mind:

bring down all flags that mock men’s liberty.

Let echo from all corners of our land

contempt for racists where their symbols be.
