Lost in the Midst of a Patriotic Fervor

I had discourse
with a plumber
who would euthanize, oh, say,
two billion people and seemed not to care

even know about the pain
his genocidal plans
would cause
And I talked

to a jobless guy
panhandling by
who thought that I
had a great personality

Poor deluded guy
I personally
am one who would
not consider wearing a flag

lapel button But I love these
American guys as fiercely
as they don’t want me
to love them

Go ahead and call me effete
if you must
I’ll be doing my best
to love you
