Images Portrayed

February 25, 2022


Of symbolistic strength

Flags, guns and crosses

Waved, depicted and stuck

As vinyl stickers on trucks

Reveal weaknesses

Concealed in shame

Of lost Individuality

Grazing as weak sheep

On a barren field since

The shepherd abandoned

A following flock that was

Never his to begin with

Distracted with the promise

Of a better field if only they

Could have made him

Their simpleton shepherd

Good for him they didn’t

He had no field for them

Still, like a lazer beam

To a rambunctious cat

They will paw and claw

At the nothingness of

Permanent distraction

Clinging to their fake

Symbols of strength

Flags, guns and crosses

Waved, depicted and stuck

As vinyl stickers on trucks


“I consider them to be symbols and I leave symbols to the symbol minded.”

– George Carlin

O God of Earth and Altar,
Bow down and hear our cry,
Our earthly rulers falter,
Our people drift and die,

The walls of gold entomb us,
The swords of scorn divide,
Take not thy thunder from us,
Take away our pride.”

[G.K. Chesterton: English Hymnal]
