Flag Waving

Extreme patriotism can be a dangerous thing
Of the love of their Country and their Country's flag they may sing
But that these can lead to feelings of superiority and to war can give rise
Is something many patriots seem to fail to realize
The long dead war heroes from the memory not allowed to fade
By those waving their national flags at the big war parade
Signs of extreme nationalism and patriotism i see every day
Photos of their national flags on their car windscreen on display
The national flag a symbol of national pride
So often too often to war it is tied
It is out of flag waving at the street war parade
That the future young heroes of war are made
Of the victims of terrorism and war we often read
Flag waving to such things quite often does lead.
