True Patriots - Poem by Francis Duggan

Patriotism is a word that is often abused
Since some so called patriots stand as accused
Of xenophobia and racism and things that divide
Some people in their Country's flag carry their pride

True patriots love their Country as well as it's people of every race
And cultural difference feel happy to embrace
Xenophobic patriots to love of Country not true
The ways of division they only pursue

True patriots do not carry their love of Country in a flag
Or of superiority of race or culture they never do brag
True patriots love people of every creed, gender and race
And for divisive negativity in their thinking there is not any space

It does seem a sad thing for to have to say
That the word patriotism is abused every day
By xenophobics and racists of the extreme kind
Amongst their sort a true patriot one could not find
