The Virus Of Patriotism - a sonnet

it seems the only real way to be
apart from those who putrefy the world
is understanding everyone who sees
the milk of human kindness being curdled.
you want that i should wave a silly flag
for god and country singing 'tis of thee.
with guns and ammo blazing they will brag;
their heroes make another child bleed.
so wear your ribbon on your pickup truck.
pollute the air, defile the land and sea.
destroy the planet just to make a buck.
not in the name of freedom but for greed.
the patriotic virus shows its face,
as it brings down the "mighty" human race.
