A Flag Planted

This was inspired by MLMM’s Tale Weaver about flags. (Yay, I figured out how to do the hyperlink!) I’m not totally happy with this poem, but it’s the best thing I’ve been able to come up with today. Lately, it seems like writing has gotten more difficult. Tell me what you think. 🙂


Do not cede your territory,
Fight against the enemy,
And try, never to surrender
Nor any white flag fly.
Why be borrower or lender
Of what makes you you uniquely?
Why bend to brusque demands
That you can never satisfy?
Grand is the better life,
Which lies  truthfully in your hands.
