Freedom's Flag

It is the soldire, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the soldier,
who salutes the Flag,
who serves under the Flag,
and whose coffin is draped in the Flag,
who allows the protester to burn the Flag.
