Flag Wavers
(1/16/2021)


Brother Bollocks
watches them

not understanding
them

symbols
seem such
emotional
things

barely reflecting
the reality
they are meant
to represent

flag burning
is much
the same

as if burning
a bible
might affect
God

proponents

opponents

simply advertising
their affiliations

riling
whichever
other side

pride
leading
to hubris
eventually leading
to violence

Brother Bollocks
prefers
a grey wardrobe

neither
encouraging
nor
inciting

cloaked
in anonymity

belonging
to nothing

fitting in
everywhere
