Flag Fetish - an art work by T Newfields
Are the greatest dangers confronting America
terrorists & revolutionaries
or flag-waving patriots
blinded by ideologies?

Will flag furling fanatics
ever cease from chanting fatuous foibles
or desist from hating imagined enemies?

If Uncle Sam continues his charade
& Disneyland maintains its parade
this seems unlikely.

Who do most people listen to –
impassioned protesters & angry poets
or Mickey Mouse & Daffy Duck
spouting sweet nonsense?
