Stars and Stripes

A holy wooden Christian cross laying on a wood background with an American flag.

Pinned to a cross, there stood the flag
of stars and stripes.

Waving down,
among the fallen leaves.

There it was, waving,
trying to plead.

Pinned to a cross,
to remind her of her old.

A Scarlett Letter perhaps?
Maybe she had been a whore?

Pinned to a cross,
to remind her of her sins.

Pinned, slaved to the order
of the “dominant” faith.

Pinned, maybe,
trying to get out.
