Berry Berry Wrong

( A poem about Gwen Berry turning away from the American flag during the national anthem)


I think I was drinking a berry smoothie

Or maybe I was watching a berry good movie


Then I saw some hairy news about Gwen Berry

It was scary how she was a little contrary


She won a medal for throwing a hammer

But now look at her flag hating manner


What she did is not Berry good

Maybe Berry is Berry misunderstood


Berry lives in St. Louis Missouri

There for our country she does worry


She worries but I'm wary of these attacks

On our flag when they turn their backs


She can bury her hammer in the sand

Or maybe she can throw it for Iran


I think its time for her to sell her house

She can move to Russia or maybe to Laos


Maybe she can move to the island of Guam

Or maybe go throw a hammer for Vietnam


Berry can argue and defend her intent

But I will turn my back on her Olympic event
