Our Flag Was still there ?

Oh say can you see, the state of our great country

We claim to be the land of the free and the home of the brave

But our behavior is abysmal and disgraces our Flags proud wave

Many laid their lives down in hopes of all Americans being equal

But negativity and hostility instead ended up becoming the sequel 

We as Americans aren't living up to our national anthems words

We've stopped America from flying, like a scene of deceased birds

Proof was indeed given through the night that our flag was still there

And though the flag is present, the spirit seems to have floated into thin air
