Flag Wavers – Written Sunday 18th November 2015 (Aged 40)

Flag Wavers

flag waving
people saving
national identity
does it leave –
the people –
who are not considered –
to be english?
who do not have values
or the culture
that the bigots
think they should have
national identity
is a shave too close
it is the route you find
but the one you never choose
flag waving
people saving
craving a different day
saying, they must do things our way
find some different words to say
flag wavers,
our destroyers not our saviours

James Garratt – Sunday 18th November 2015
