The Slavery Flag

Tear it down
It’s a rallying call
In the language of pre-Civil War
Tear it down
Its history is done
Turn your backs on what it stood for
Whatever today
You think it means
A thread connects it to slavery States
Connects direct
To rancorous loss
Of Confederate ideals and dictates
The slavery flag
Of the slavery States
Is a modern day slave trade pronoun
A past to regret
A past to forget
Tear it down, tear it down, tear it down.
