"Our Flag" Poem

-Author Unknown

You may call it an old piece of bunting;

You may call it an old tattered rag;

But thousands have died for its honor

And shed their best blood for the flag.

You may call it an old piece of bunting;

You may call it an old tattered rag;

But Freedom has made it majestic;

And Time has ennobled Our Flag.
