For My Country

March 8, 2008
By Savannah Carlstrom, Davenport, IA

I pledge allegiance to the flag
the one we wave as we spill innocent blood

Of the United States of America
the country I should be willing to fight for

And to the republic for which it stands
the government run by the greedy and power hungry

One nation, under God
in whose name we persecute those who are different

yet divided by race, religion, money, and politics

With liberty
the freedom of choice, unless your choice is wrong

And justice for all
well, almost all.

In honor of a country lost to ignorance
