The companion poem to Retire My Flag...Please
The red flag has
Existed so long
Never to be
Retracted

The populace
Has suffered the throng
How can it be
Redacted?

The work of many
Has ceased to show
The fruits of labor
Expended

And now the case
Has started to blow
Never to be
Extended

What of these
Impossible flags
Has got the world
Asunder?

And where will we
Through much and more
Escape the storms
And thunder?

The work of many
Has ceased to show
The fruits the flag
Was mending

And now the world
Has ceased to grow
Impossible times
Are ending

With these here flags
I will desire
Never to be
They type

If you want to
Survive this mire
Never believe
The hype
