On Mothers Grave I Swear

"Things that matter most
must never be at the mercy
Of things that matter least"
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

When declaring my commitment
On facts of life I state sincere
Why would I pledge a falsehood
Where in truth I have no fear

Who is it that one tries to please
In worlds of differences so many
Where best suited to a liar
Who in truth does not have any

Speaking out in double standards
Is the ultimate betrayal
So many take the pledge and stand
Whilst crossing fingers in denial

In September 2014 the American Humanist Association launched its "Don’t Say the Pledge" campaign, encouraging Americans to sit out the Pledge of Allegiance when it’s said in schools and government meetings in order to draw attention to the divisive nature of “under God.”
