Tattered

August 10, 2022

Your flag is tattered

As your patriotism wanes

With each thread that unravels

Loosening your grip

Of what you hold on to

Due to your dichotomous display of

Old Glory waving from a tiny monster truck

Absorbing road filth and corrosive salt

Which is neither illuminated at night

Or given its alleged respect

Taking the passive aggressive

Alternative route equivalent to

Stomping and burning the flag

Is the message of the shredded symbolism

Wouldn’t you think that the

Patriotism police would self monitor

This abhorrent behavior??

Perhaps they are to distracted with all

The malignant macho messages

Of pledging allegiance to their decaying flag

Saying they support the thin blue line

Until they get pulled over for speeding

Or that they will give up their guns

When pried from their cold dead hands

Hands used to place flat vinyl stickers on

Their back window of AK 47 silhouettes

And Let’s Go Brandon decals or lame rhymes

Next time we won’t be defeated

If our candidate is not cheated

(If these drivers are parents, think of the
Poor sportsmanship they are portraying
To their offspring, if you don’t win be a victim)

Anyway, could not catch up to the driver, disrespecting the flag, to remind him of…..

US Flag Codes

(b)

The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.

//

(e)

The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.

//

(k)

The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

Nope, it will get tattered untill it is discarded.

Ooops.

“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

    • As soon as you find Kenneth’s frequency. *Or Karen’s.

      * R.E.M. “What is the frequency Kenneth?”

      (for a short time, “Kenneth” also became a term used for a clueless person).
