Unfold, Unlease, and Wave Away. Salute That Flag!

Dear Sillies,
It's almost Flag Day, an upstanding time to rise to the occasion - unfold, unleash, and wave away.
Betsy Ross knew how to please. I salute her.

Be well, and may you be sincerely grateful for your freedoms.
Love you.

  3. Flag Day isn't celebrated here. I must agitate to have it included on our public holiday list - the Betsy Ross way.

    1. Bring on the screaming and hollering til you get your needs met, EC. In the name of patriotism, naturally.

  4. Another work of deathless poesy! And I'm going to email you the ultimate patriotic Flag Day gif.

  5. Oh Gosh! I love your poem, but I'm of an age where my reverence is divided between Frances Scott Key and Bill Dana ("José can you see?"). Please advise.

    1. Haha. I'm afraid I'm getting there too. My best advice: Be inspired and remain upstanding.

  7. treat the pole with respect and let the freakin' flag fly. Stars and stripes or rainbow. Another winning poem.
    And all the comments above cracked me up - you've got quite a fan club

    1. Right? The limp, flaccid ones only discourage. Patriotism can only be ignited when they stand loud, proud, and strong.
      Thanks for the giggles, Diane.

  10. Those poles are known to jump up and poke one in the eye, better keep a sharp eye on that.

  11. I should erect something in honor of your patriotism. What would be appropriate?

    1. The only thing I can think of, Jono, is a pen...a really hard, sturdy one with solid girth.
      Cheers.
