    The Patriot

    On a warm summer morning
    He walked out of his house
    Under his arm he carried a symbol
    A symbol of freedom a symbol of courage
    As he walked across the lawn
    To a mast that reached the heavens
    The young patriot, hoisted the symbol into the air
    As it reached the top
    He stepped back with pride
    As he looked at the great flag
    Fluttering beneath the sky
    He remembers what the colors mean,
    And those who have stood their ground
    To preserve this country’s heritage
    And keep it safe from tyranny
    In this land of the brave there are few like him
    That would make the stand and take the fall
    He is not a soldier,
    Just a man who would sacrifice himself to save his land
    He is a Patriot, proud and true
    Standing for his country
    What about you?

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.
