Fallen has he and she—
ideals for all to be free.
Giving their lives for a country
to let society take a knee and claim inequality—
because it’s a social media frenzy.
Maybe they can’t they see,
the spirits of he and she,
helping them up
because they are free.
Those who do take a knee,
crying and weeping at the cemetery,
I offer my sincerest apology.
The spirits of he and she,
the ones who shared being happy with me,
haunt my memory
of being free.
It should’ve been me.
"A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow, always hopeful of romance and adventure." ~Charlie Chaplin
