A knucklehead is patriotic.
I’d rather see the flag in flames.
It’s after all a semiotic
For jumping other peoples’ claims:
It constituted us in slavery -
America’s first claim to knavery;
And then we slaughtered native bands
Who occupied these “virgin” lands.
And ever since it’s stood for avarice:
For exploitation by the rich
Who’ve made this land their perfect niche,
While all the while we've grown cadaverous.
To this I say we bid adieu
By burning the red, white, and blue.
