You Can Take Down The Flag!

You can take down the flag
 but what it stands for still remains.
We cannot eradicate a heritage
 and wipe away its ugly stains.

In the hearts and minds of racists
 lies hate that will never die.
That flag means much to them
 as does the confederate battle cry.

The south IS the confederacy
 and shall forever remain so.
And by taking down the flag
 the hatred seed will grow.

If you’ve ever lived down south
 then you know this to be true.
They never lost the war.
In their minds, they beat the Blue.

“The south will rise again!”
 is still the battle cry.
Men of great position
 don’t even wonder why.

We all know where we stand
 and nothing much has changed.
By taking down the flag,
 hate will not be constrained!
