Comments : They Wave Their Flags

    I'm confused. Is this in favor of something or complaining about something?

    None the less it is a good poem. It flows together nicely. Good job.

      I'm afraid I am complaining about something - specifically, the kind of jingoistic patriotism that is used as justification for wars and intolerance - and is symbolised by flag waving. Glad you liked the poem anyway.

    Okay, Mark. I am really amazed by poets who write on subject matters such as this. And this is just so true. They also wave the flag here in the Philippines. Most of the time, for vain reasons.
