Red, Blood and Blue

men died for your unappreciative belligerence
but I don't expect you to understand    
earning more in a day than such men in a lifetime    
mothers lost sons, wives husbands    
children grown, their father never known    
   
entitlement is an over statement    
lives shattered, hearts lament    
the American dream,    
education, oppurtunity    
white picket fence    
just so you could dis    
the author of your millions    
   
you are no role model    
no more than scum    
bite the hands that feed you    
whence does your pay comes    
   
you refuse to embrace ole glory    
even for her, mens blood write your story    
life isn't fair    
a hard lesson to learn    
have you no pride    
your coat you turn
