Growing up with "Don't"
Author Unknown
I used to think I was a regular guy, but...
Who remembers the slain of war?
As infusions of all cultures
Water down the meanings of things,
Should not this be a school's task?

Immigrants become citizens
Only memorizing what's best
To pass tests of citizenship,
Later forgetting all of it!


Shouldn't there be a reminder
As these same ones do ESL,
Reminding them of the U.S.
And the customs we hold so dear?
Slain of war lie in foreign fields
Forgotten by most of mankind,
The reasons they were sacrificed,
And who they were sacrificed for!


Let's take a deep breath May 29
Think deeply why we have freedom!
Why we are able to do things
That other's elsewhere cannot do!
