When elected representatives refuse or fail to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance or National Anthem – or just as disgraceful – fail to stand during the joint session of Congress when the President is honoring a slain American Hero in front of his widow – there’s something really sad, and wrong about these people – and they sure as hell don’t deserve to be elected to anything, lest the United States Congress.

representatives who refuse to stand

We’re Americans
it’s just what we do
we stand for the Pledge
and Anthem, too

So, what are you doing
sitting down?
are you a jerk?
or just some clown?

When men are dying
to keep you free
get off your butt
Don’t look at me!

You’re sitting pretty
sitting fast
you’ve far too rich
but you just pass

The responsibility that goes with free
To honor those
protecting you and me

And you have the nerve
to hold office, too?
You have no respect
for the Red, White, and Blue

The tears are streaming
down my face
As I watch in shock
while you disgrace

The office you were elected to serve
and don’t even care
about your word

I’m tired . . .
worn . . .
of all your lies
Stand up, by God
for this surprise

For we are a Nation
of more than words
we’ve shed our blood
We must be heard!

And so to you
disgraceful soul
who will not stand
This will not
do

Who shirks the essence
of our flag
who makes your voters
really mad

It’s time you were ushered out the House
and left to rot
you lowly louse!

For when you’re elected
in this land
it’s about damn time
for you
to stand!
