The Scale

The Confederate Flag…

It’s “history and heritage”
It’s “proud Southern song.”
Hoisted high and held aloft,
An agony prolonged
Beneath its spread,
Hiding true intent.
An entire race upon one plate,
The other weight’s descent.
Down, down, crushing sounds,
The race falls to one side,
Where human heart beats apart,
Victim of misguided pride.
Dimensions, units bend and break,
Gaulded is the arm
That tries to fly what clearly defies
Our vow to do no harm.
