based on a news article
"Hold it there kids."

In South Berwick,
They are learning
to respect the flag
in a whole new way.

Pulling and pulling
with all their might,
Central School students,
hoisted the American flag
to the top of the flagpole.

"At the end of the day
make sure you fold it right.
Don't let it touch the ground.
Hold on tight!"

Fire burned classrooms up,
but didn't make the building fall down.
Thank God for the love and support
of a town that rallied around.

The VFW brought flags for every room,
and a new pole and banner
for the front of the school.
Now they hoist Old Glory every day.

In South Berwick,
They are posing with pride
in front of a flag
that fire and disaster
couldn't burn away.

"Smile big kids!"
