wake up the children of my motherland

in place of preaching practice
love for your motherland is not proved
by painting tricolor on your forehead, cheek
and dancing to the beat of drums
its shown by small gestures
like shunning greed, corruption and beastly actions
for its your actions
that paint the picture of your motherland
not your chants or paintings!

  1. You are dead right. The flag swingers are not always the best patriots. You know what Samuel Johnson said: :”Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel” (1775)
