Happy To Be Counted Out - Poem by Francis Duggan

Patriotism to many is worth far more than a brag
Those who do wave their pride in their national flag
But if this is what patriotism is all about
Then of such i am happy for to be counted out
For flag waving is not part of love of Country for me
I only enjoy Nature's beauty i do see
Everywhere around me in my walks every day
Suppose i am not one who loves Country in a patriotic way
But then it is each to their own as the wise one does say
It is mostly to Nature that respect i do pay
The one whose wonders are many and her secrets not few
Of her every day i do learn something new
And if flag waving as a show of patriotism is what love of Country is about
Then i am one of those who must be counted out.
