Star-spangled Jingle

Melita Catalina Warren 1949 (Kansas)

Why wage war if peace we can restore?
We vow to change as tars stream.

Peace stands an ever possible dream.

Let us overcome all we deplore. . .
Fight for that which we esteem.

Justice, liberty, we ever adore. . .
For this the oppressed yet scream.

Remember the red, white, and blue,
To progeny all over the world,
For she stands for the good and true -
Let Old Glory be proudly unfurled.
