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.
