We Have A Flag

We have a flag now
At my little UU church.

After arguing for years
About the whys and wheres

Of cloth and wind and time,
What’s false, what’s true,

We bought a banner,
Installed a bracket

On the weathered bricks,
And hung it there,

Unfurling freely in the air,
Shining in the sun,

Red and white and blue,
Blood and sweat and tears,

Proclaiming to the world
It’s our flag too.
