Flag Day 2022
I am thankful to be an American
And hope you are thankful
For your nations
We can’t love them because they’re fair
Even as we might want to change
Corruption and injustice
There are small victories
We might have taken part in
Someday our nations might be perfect
Not if we stand against each other
In the nation
Nation against nation
A nation is defined by how it lives
How it saves
Then how it waves
With ready refusal to
Participate in Armageddon

Flag Day in the USA is 14 June.
“I Am Thankful to Be an American” is a song. I think of it when I think of Flag Day.
