Paint me a Symbol

I am not a much of a poet, but I figured I would give it a try.


Paint Me A Symbol

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Justice,
So I painted a Judge handing down a ruling.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Freedom,
So I painted a Pilot flying high in the sky.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Courage,
So I painted a Firefighter running into a burning building.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Bravery,
So I painted a Police Officer putting their life on the line.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Sacrifice,
So I painted a Soldier holding the line under enemy fire.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Prosperity,
So I painted a Couple throwing a party for their many friends.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Liberty,
So I painted a Protester holding a sign.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Wisdom,
So I painted a Scholar pouring over a book.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Determination,
So I painted a Mountain Climber nearing the peak.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Sincerity,
So I painted a firm Handshake.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Ingenuity,
So I painted an Inventor tinkering away in their shop.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Imagination,
So I painted an Artist in front of a blank canvas.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Success,
So I painted a Decathlon winner.

A man once asked me to paint him a symbol of Compassion,
So I painted a Doctor tending to a patient.

A man then asked me to combine all these themes in a unifying symbol,
I put the paint down and stood up to look him square in the eye,
Its already done I said as I handed the man a small American Flag,
He thought for a second then with a nod he took Old Glory and walked away.


Say what you will about our leaders, current troubles, or past indiscretions, but no country in the history of man has done more to promote freedom, justice, and prosperity throughout the world then the United States of America. We have been a force for good unlike the world had ever seen. The flag represents all that is right with this country; it is truly an embodiment of all the positive attributes listed and many more.
