i got what you mean, my friend, but there's always exception to the rule... Patriotism is a noble thing if not being constituted to dirty politics...well penned! :)

Patriotism unfortunately increasingly manifests itself either as an obsession or as xenophobia nowadays. A poem which leaves an impact.
