Knowing Our History Stops Misunderstandings!

I find it quite honestly dismaying

How few of us know our civil rights.

For history tells us people died for them,

People who never wavered in the fight.

But now our rights are being jeopardized,

Threatened by those who pray for a civil war,

Who don’t seem to understand what is meant

By freedom of speech on this American shore.

Kneeling against injustice has been protected

Speech for everyone, including you and me.

So, I do not envy those who act goofy and mad

When one exercises their rights patriotically.
