    Sons of the Flag is a (c)(3) non-profit that provides critical support to military service members, first responders and civilians who have survived burn injuries. However, here Agard juxtaposes his simple description of a flag as a 'piece of cloth' with the powerful symbolism of a flag. In other words, it's just a piece of cloth but has the power to bring a nation to its knees. He repeats this structure throughout the poem. The use of question at the start suggests that this poem constitutes a form of 4/5.

      I think there is a parade passing by the author of the poem. I think that the line means not just the American flag is passing by, but all the flag represents- the battles for freedom and peace, justice, the American people/5(6). The poet talks about his country's soldiers marching on the street. They are carrying their flags. The poet wants his people to respect the flag and feel proud. The feelings of the poet are the same for all the people through out the world. The Flag Goes By: English Poems The Flag Goes By To HOME PAGE.

Our flag should be seen at weddings well after we've departed. It should stir in the heat above the tables and music. It should watch our friends join and separate and laugh as they go out under the clouded night for cold air and cigarettes. Our flag should sing when we cannot, praise when we cannot, rejoice when we cannot. Let it be a reminder.
