"Patriots shout promises and fools salute a flag,
While the country which it represents is torn apart like rags,
It's not just done in fact, it's done in deed;
I count the blessing daily that the air I breathe is free,
But between assault and battery you'll be brought to your knees,
It hurts me deep inside to see you bleed,
My country 'tis of thee,
Country 'tis of thee."
From a song I wrote for Canada many years back.
