Although I am a conservative, I find nothing whatsoever worth conserving about slavery or discrimination based on race, color, or creed…
Flags did wave
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.
nearly 20% black illiteracy
When Confederate Flags today yet fly
‘Old Glory’s Story’ is somehow awry
