Calling Out The NFL!
Calling out the NFL over this whole National Anthem mess, I wrote these!

Anyone who would like to post these on your web sites, facebooks or youtube videos please let me know!

Let's get the word out and protect our flag! Show it the respect it deserves!



The Whole Ten Yards

By Ramona Thompson

There's nothing you can do or say to make this right
Hell of a mess you've made sticking your beliefs where they don't belong
Even Hollywood isn't this stupid compared to the NFL

What were you thinking to refuse to stand?
How could you bring such shame to an otherwise outstanding sport?
One would start to think those sport enchanceing drugs had made you lose your damn mind
Lacking any decent moral values as far I can see
Even you have to admit it was't the best career move to make

There's something missing in that brain of yours, son
Eager, why so eager to tear down a good nation that had made you rich beyond your wildest dreams?
None of your reasoning even begins to make sense

You an idiot or just plain damn fool?
A whole country of anthem lovers would sure love to know the answer that burning question
Reached out limit now with these crazy on the field antics
Don't respect the U.S. than get out of it!
Sure not we need or want you anyway!

Flag On The Play

By Ramona Thompson

Foul and unjust!
Lower than low to treat the flag this way
Allowed never to play again should be your ulimate punishment
God knows even that really isn't enough

Out with cowards and in with real men who give a damn about their nation!
No, we won't kneel beside you in disgrace

There's too many of us and too few of you for you to win anyway
Heros in nothing but your own minds
Everyone laughs behind your backs that you even started this

Pathetic, just pathetic
Losers one and all
A show of disrespect like this sure could ruin a career
You really should have thought about that before you tried to take on the good ole U.S. of A

Now should't you Mr. Footballs For Brains?

Should't you?

2017 Ramona Thompson


By Ramona Thompson

Shameful, just shameful
These cannot be the role models our kids adore
A protest this disrespectful simply cannot be allowed
No way, no how
Don't you agree my fellow Americans?

So how about it?
This could be our only chance to get these cowards off our tv screens
An idiot at a time we must get them fired and replaced
No second chances
Don't you see the fate of our country depends on our courage to do this?

Simply put we have no other choice
They cross the line first and worse
Apologies are too late to be accepted and don't mean anything anyway
Now my own boy is refusing to stand because he wants to be like his hero
Don't you think it's gone too far?

So much we could on the playing field anyway than these pitful fools
Too lazy to give a damn about a nation that has given them so much
A little sick to my stomach is what it makes me
No one else maybe willing to say it but I will
Down with the NFL and rise up in glory for the U.S.A.!

Who's with me?

May God Bless American

By Ramona Thompson

Mad men with guns and men refusing to stand for our nation's song
Ask yourselfs what has the world come to?
Young people with no sense anymore of right and wrong

God only knows what could be next
One thing we must not do is ignore these terrible warnings of time's end
Devil already has way too many soliders in this fight as it is

Better to be safe then sorry and so we must take drastic measures againest these terrorists
Let us begin with the firing of disrespectful NFL players and tougher gun laws
Everyone must band together as one if we hope to win this nation's toughest battles yet
So it must be if we ever to make American great again
Sad but true our heros have failed us and mad men have taken over

Another tragic mass murder or show of open disrespect cannot happen again
Maybe if had been tougher in the first place none of this would be happening
Every single one of us shares some small part of blame
I know we can't go back, but we must somehow go forward
Regardless of creed, sex or color
Cowards must be dealt with
A wake up call must be answered
No more innocent people should die and no more flags should be simply spit upon

Not if we will all stand
Not kneel or link arms but stand
As one
And take this great nation back!
One brave act at a time!

The National Anthem

By Ramona Thompson

They who refuse to stand should fined, fired and banned for life
However good they play is not the question here
Even if they mend their ways the damage they have done to the younger generation who looks up to them has been done

No excuses and for sure no second chances
A coward who refuses to stand for our nation is no man I want my child looking up to
That's all there is to it
I don't care if you agree with me or not I fully intend to speak my mind
One should not and can not be quite when it comes to our nation being hated on like this
No way this mess can leak any more into the minds of our native youth

A damned shame and waste of their God given talents
Let them learn you don't mess with the U.S.A.
All American or you are not American at all
Not allowed to stay on this soil if you hate it so much you refuse to stand for it
There can be no backing down on this if we want to keep them in line
Have to make an example of least a few to get the others to shape up
Either they stand or they go it is as simple as that
Make a stand for your nation or leave!

Your choice NFL players
How shall we play this?

2017 Ramona Thompson


By Ramona Thompson

How about we all just take a moment to think this thru?
A little better understanding maybe we could come to
Let us link arms at the table rather than on the field
Fall to our knees only to pray not to disrespect a blameless flag
There's got to be a better way than the one you have chosen
I bet if we talked more and protested less we would find it
Maybe even meet on common ground
Ever think about that?

How about this?
A meeting of the minds in peace rather than empty protest
Let us work as one rather than apart to find the solution
Feelings put aside in favor or logic
This I believe could work so much better, don't you?
If we all just stopped pointing fingers long enough

Maybe even a president would have to eat his harsh words.....

2017 Ramona Thompson


By Ramona Thompson

None of you deserve all the riches you get
Flaunting your disrespect all over the place of our nation
Losers one and all no matter how great you play the game

So many good men and women have died for that flag
Ones you should be grateful to
Best believe you would have and be nothing if not for them

So why can't you stand for just a few precious minutes?

No matter the color of your skin or your creed it is your honor bound duty
Follow the examples of better men who have come before you
Learn and listen so you may gain wisdom

So what if you're a superstar on the field?
Once upon a time they were superstars for you on the battlefield
Build with honor, steel and more guts than you will ever know
So let's show them at least an ounce of respect

Now is the only time for life is short
Followed by small children who look up to you
Let them not down

Show them what a true, brave American can be
One at a time guide them to do the honorable thing
Better men for it you will surely be
Shoving aside selfish wants and needs for the desire of others

On Bended Knee

By Ramona Thompson

Out now with with your damn protests
No excuse for this behavior concerning your birth nation

Blame not the flag or a song for your own failures
Every last one of you is a complete disagree
No one should upon you again as any kind of hero
Don't you see you are only make the problems of this world worst?
Every time you refuse to stand you tear away that much more of your own self respect
Even your reflection turns away in horror  

Is it really worth it?

Is it?
