How many flags, Hillary?
How many for you, Donald?
What is your count, Bernie?
This flag waving’s getting old.

Old Glory waves over Perkins
in oversized glory, and even
hangs at our porn store, adornin’,
our oversized passion and sin.

It really is a desecration,
when politicians try to prove
their bona fides by misdirection,
wrapping themselves in red, white and blue.

Forgetting the flag calibrations -
“I’m flying more flags that you” - 
how about a real declaration
of policies they will pursue,

Let’s make it illegal in election years
to display Old Glory for anything less
than the death of a leader or soldier;
pols can use banners; give the flag a rest.
