Commie Flag

Updated on March 3, 2016

By: Wayne Brown


You did nothing when government took the vote

They rammed health reform down your throat

It’ll be expensive and on the economy a drag

But what happens when they raise the commie flag?


You did nothing about drugs and illegals at the border

They come right thru despite the law and order

It’ll cost us big and the economy will soon sag

But what happens when they raise the commie flag?



You said nothing when the wanted more financial regulation

Said it was consumer-oriented, good for the nation

But the cost of all of it is in the consumer bag

So what happens when the raise the commie flag?



You watched oil spew for months into the Gulf water

Leaving its residue in most every little corner

They say the spill is on BP’s nickel

So what of it when they raise that hammer and sickle?



You watch while our textbooks are altered for history

Say some things are not important to you or me

They say it will be clearer, give a better answer

So what of it when they raise that commie banner?



You days of liberty may slowly disappear and surely die

Can’t fight against it, no need to try

They say we’ll all be equal; make up the lag

So what you gonna do when they raise that commie rag?

      Your right my friend the clock is ticking and not in your country's favor. We have our own set of similar problems in Canada. What will it take? Revolution in the streets, taking back our country from politicians who we trusted it in their care. They are polluting our very essence of living FREE but our flags are neglected and burned and spat on. Will be stand by and let them allow outsiders or corruption within to hoist the Commie banner, I sure hope not.

      @Tom Whitworth...not sure I want to see his underwear, Tom (LOL)!

      @lorlie6...That single question inspired the whole piece for me. Thanks, Lorlie! WB

      Sam...we can all do more by reading, educating, and discussing this danger among ourselves. Communism preys on ignorance and apathy. As Americans, we have gotten soft and we need to toughen up and throw off some of these chains of political correctness. When you hear talk of comprehensive reform, unnecessary change, disasters that require new ways of doing it, centralization of process, you are looking socialism right in the eye. We have time to do something about it but the clock is ticking and time is on their side. WB

      @Bpop...Poppy, Many moons ago, as an Air Force flyer in training, I was subject to a few weeks of "mock" life as a prisoner of war. It is amazing how quickly the mind can be fooled into believing that make-believe is real. At the end of the training in a surprise move, the American Flag was raised over the camp while the Star Spangled Banner played over the PA System. I, along with many of my colleagues fell to my knees and cried so thankful that the flag was still there. I will never forget that and I definitely do not want to see another flag flying over this land. Thanks for the comments and the encouragement! WB

      Wayne, this poem says it all. It should be required reading for all Americans, because honestly where is the outrage about where we are headed? I rate this up.

      It's even odds the current president wears underware that looks like the Commie Flag.

      @bayoulady...thank you. It's beginning to look like they have to kick down our front door before we recognize that the socialists have come for us! WB

      @rkhyclak...bekka, I just had to jab the stick a bit to say how long do we wait before we shut this stuff down. I want everyone to come out blasting in November and blow the liberals and maybe some of the homesteading republicans out of the Congress so that we can achieve gridlock for the next two years and do nothing but criticize Obama for his crappy golf scores. I hope it was a bit sobering for some! This economics he is employing is ancient theory and long since proved a failure. Economics based in the theory of government spending and government stimulation are borderline socilaist ideas anyway. The government needs to be figuring out how to get the hell out of the way instead of in the way. Given enough room, America will fix itself. We have proved that over and over. All government does is clog up the pipes. WB

      Great poem, Wayne! I don't think I want to be around when they raise that dang flag, but that's straight where we're headed with these morons running the show.

      I'm also interested in the new macroeconomics Shark mentioned...I failed that class in college. Maybe it was cuz I didn't see it as Obama does lol

      Rated up :)

      Nice job. I am not a poetry nut, but I understood this.

      Keep on hubbing.

      Hey WB, great work! Scary the path we're heading down. Just today Obama called for more Federal spending claiming that more spending will "continue" to help re-build our economy.

      I never heard of borrowing and spending your way to prosperity. This is a new kind of macro economics, I wonder if they will start teaching this at college.
