    Take this flag and hold it high,
    Wave it proud and true.
    Think of all who chose to die,
    To save this flag for you.
    Stripes of red for those who bled,
    From here to Tri-Po-Li.
    Stars of white to fill the night,
    With light for you and me.
    So,when it passes in parade,
    With trumpets blaring loud,
    Then put your hand upon your heart,
    And let your chest swell proud.
    Never,ever lose that pride,
    In red and white and blue,
    Land of the free-home of the brave,
    This flag-this land and You!

    Written by 15 year old boy in my sister's class. Just thought I would share it with you vets.

    Ron,

    Welcome to this board. I am a non vet, but have been
    hanging with these Vets for a loooooong time. Great place
    to be, hope you'll stay and join in. We have a serious side
    and a not so serious side, so enjoy.

    Quite a talented young man. The poem is very pretty and
    tell him we said so.

    Hell, don't feel bad about being a non-vet. We all used to be one of those. You're more than welcome here....But watch out for the Homerphile. Do not, under any circumstances, loan him any money or get involved in any of his "Roses are red" crap. /larryD/ (Ughh...bring a bottle next time!)

    Ron,

    Stop in the Boom Boom lounge for a drink. All the LUSH'S
    on this board can direct you. We have several nonvets
    on the board, so your not alone.


    dreamcatcher,

    Don't know about you, but Homer writes me beautiful
    "roses are red" poems. I wouldn't go so far as to
    say it was quite worth the buck I paid him to do it. lol!

    Geez!, I think maybe just maybe...I'm workin too cheap for such poetic ability...I'm sort of out of the everyday ya know.

    Probably won't get the respect I deserve till I'm gone...bet there'll be a mad rush to buy up my poetry.

    Oh well!,such is the fate of the " men with the pen "...that rhymes...Hmmm!

    Donna,
    You have been my most faithfull admirer, having spent a considerable amount on my selections of prose...it has however become necessary to charge somewhat more for these treasures.

    Sorry for the inconvenience,rest assure the return one day will bring great gain.
