Conversation re Patriotism
-Even you feel a twinge at the ballpark.
The huge flag and the service men and
women manhandling it to cover the field!
Then a local person, not a real pro, singing
the National Anthem with gusto.
-Would be like cheering billionaires.
-Granted they’ve gone too far and we’ve
let them. Adjustments are beginning
to be made and...
-Playing into a stacked deck!
-Even so. Such an unstacking will take
-One gets only one lifetime.
-And we can never achieve Utopia in it!
-Only that we can’t put up with a phony one.
-We moved from that...or are moving.
-Oh well! You and I are throwing into the effort.
Not hanging back to make wisecracks. And that’s
enough for me to feel the twinge you speak of.
