Feelings of the American Flag

My Stars were my pride
I was always ready for the ride
Hoisted in the clear sky
I flew freely and high!

But now, I lay in unwanted ashes
Burnt by many, those bodily fleshes
Alas, all my stars now feel like scars!
Alas, all my stars now feel like scars!

    Brilliant! 'flags' and other jingoistic platitudes do puff up nation on earth, and make them insular and detached from the rest of our shared humanity. Thank you for a wonderful and timely and poignant poem!

    Kindly note....just feelings of a flag..... Not to hurt anyone's patriotic sentiments....
