Lower the Flag

By Kokeshi088

I different poem, I don't feel it's my best work. After seeing so many flags lowered, I had to write something about it. We can't forget these people. We can't mourn for them, because their great lives live on! This is told from a child's perspective.

Lower the flag,

Lower the flag,

Lower it, why?

Because of a sadness,

Sadness in the stars,

The stars are weeping.

Lower the flag,

Lower the flag,

Why is there sadness?

Seven brave souls,

Died far, far away,

We can never say goodbye.

Lower the flag,

Lower the flag,

The church bells ring,

We will remember the seven.

We cannot forget,

Even in these dark days,

Lower the flag,

Lower the flag,

Wear your black clothes today.

Why? Why?

We will remember them,

They still live,

We cannot forget their souls.

Forget the flag,

Forget the black,

They're still aliveā€¦

In us.
