REMEMBER the Pledge of Allegiance,
hand over heart?
The National Anthem at the baseball park?

Boys serving our Country
so brave and so proud?
Church-goers praising in voices so loud?

Where is our homeland
with children playing?
What are they learning? Certainly not praying.

Pity the children.
No one's at home,
to hear their triumphs. They're home all alone.

The future is bleak,
and I hope that I'm wrong,
but I think that we've lost to those voices most strong.

They've killed our patriotism.
They are killing our prayers.
And now children are killing,cause nobody cares.
