Proud to be…

if only they could see
everything they fought for
everything they died for
going up in the smoke
of so many bar-be-ques
parties and drinking
an excuse to stay home

if only they could see
would they still be proud
proud to serve
and still proud to have died?

are we really proud to be American
or is it just the place of our birth
a nice title that we forget to use
except for on hot July days
