You Look Wonderful Tonight ....
Tonight I am standing down wind
of a most beautiful breeze of love
Amazing is a sight that makes me
proud to share the shadow from above
Many would consider pride to be a virtue
of only the lowly and simplest of man
And yet isn't pride a huge part of love
itself when taking love in hand
And what of you ? You have been burned
desecrated exploited and yet still
Yet you stand tall there above those who'll
not understand and never will
A power so silent as to never speak
is the most powerful voice of all
And yet just how long you might stand ?
We can only let you make that call
To me there are some things that are just to beautiful to destroy or exploit for any cause, there has been far , far too much good to come from what this flag represents . And I believe that when a population becomes too far above displaying it respectfully and begins distroying it willfully , then perhaps even the ultimate freedoms that this flag represents are being overused . Once about thirty years ago I got a phone call asking me to participate in a poll , one of the questions was , "Do you think it's okay for the American flag be used to promote a business or a product ?"....and without a lot of thought I said "yes " and to myself thought , what an odd question ! Boy was I wrong !
