Flags Of Violation
Another flag another country
All hand made, traditionally,
Stitched and stitching,
Belly aching, skin itching,
Knees skimmed bruised and blue,
Fingers bleeding red, till bones show through,
Work, work till face is ashen and white,
Pennies collected so cool for another night,
Red, White and blue.
Another celebration, different colours, different flags
Just another penny for tiny girls and lads,
Over waters and over seas,
Kids working for mere pennies,
As we party in celebrations,
Waving Flags of human violations!
Red, White and Blue !
