We are taught to pledge allegiance to the flag

A flag that represents valor, unity, and justice

“One nation,” we say

“Indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,” we say

But we pledge a lie

One nation, divided by hatred

One nation, where people’s color matters more than their heart

One nation, split from fear

Whilst fighting for equality and justice,

Rubber bullets soar

The blue ram their cars through the people they are meant to serve

Gas brings tears to people’s eyes

But whilst fighting for suppression

Whilst attacking the symbol for the American government

The blue protect none
