Sam: What's wrong with waving flags?
Ted: Flags should be not be worshipped – that amounts to idolatry.
Terri: I dunno. I see no problem with respecting ones flag.
Tim: All too often that involves a disrespect for some other flags – therein lies the problem.

Flag Fetish / Drapeau Fetish / Se�ale Fetiche / Kokki no Jubaku - an art work by T Newfields


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
this seems unlikely.

Who would you rather listen to:
impassioned protesters & angry poets
or Mickey Mouse & Daffy Duck?
