Of The People

Patriotic? Sure, I guess.
Well, do I love my country? Yes.
Right or wrong? Of course! That’s love.
A patriot? Sure, see above.
So, is my country flawless? No,
And don’t trust those who tell you so.
Best country on earth? I doubt
I’m wise enough to work that out.
We’re people; people make mistakes.
We can’t both eat and have our cakes.
I’d like to think that on the whole
My country plays the hero role
And that, when all’s been said and done,
Our lesser evil side has won,
And where I find that’s not quite true
I’ll work to change it. How ’bout you?
