I’m a who
A person who cares
When a leader treats
His fellow citizens with disrespect.
And ignoring Constitutional rights.
I didn’t see disrespect on the field.
Just the opposite. I saw pain in faces
Of those who love their country and their God.
They met as team members united and proud.
They weren’t burning anything or cursing outloud.
They didn’t disrespect their neighbors or anyone in the crowd.
But someone dared shame these men as they made their claim,
Someone dared disrespect Americans and drenched them with shame,
These were the same men who side by side with American soldiers
And rescued numerous victims trapped in their homes,
Helped with cleanup operations night after night.
Did they do something wrong while they were doing things right?
These brave men united together to point out what needs to be done,
Isn’t it time for peace and setting aside the gun.
The wars are over and it’s time to clean up after the storms,
Just like soldiers, teammates, strong leaders, and all,
We are the examples for the world to see.
Especially how a leader treats you and me.
