The Pledge


I pledge allegiance to the citizens
Of the United States of America
Regardless of race, regardless of creed
Regardless of sex, regardless of need

I pledge allegiance to the environment
Of the United States of America
And to the animals and plants that grow
To the air we breathe and the waters that flow

I pledge allegiance to the workers
Of the United States of America
To a minimum wage that would earn a living
To protecting their bodies without misgiving

I pledge allegiance to the consumers
Of the United States of America,
To keep corporations from victimizing
Let the buyer beware of false advertising

I pledge allegiance to the Constitution
Of the United States of America
And to the ideals our forefathers sought
For which they died, for which they fought
When our nation's pristine and injustices lag
When we honor these things, we honor our flag
