|| What's wrong with waving flags?
|| (imitating a TV evangelist) Flags should be not be worshipped – that amounts to idolatry!
|| (imitating a Donald Duck) I dunno. I see no problem with respecting ones flag.
|| (chuckling) All too often that involves disrespect for some other flags – therein lies the problem.
Are the greatest dangers confronting America
terrorists & revolutionaries
or flag-waving patriots
numbed by their own ideologies?
Will flag furling fanatics
ever cease from chanting fatuous foibles
or desist from hating imagined enemies?
If Uncle Sam continues his charade
& Disneyland persists in its parade
it seems unlikely.
Who would you rather hear –
impassioned protesters & angry poets
or Mickey Mouse & Daffy Duck
spouting sweet nonsense
gently in your ear?
