Independence, World Cup and all

Incensed Thinker asked me the other day
what I allege my loyalty to-
this land or that one?
I've never understood patriotism as different from parochialism.
But I do
throw my heart into my memories
everywhere. This land, that classroom, this cafe and this beautiful land.
Phooey, he said. What fun is that when you're watching the World Cup?
Oh. That's an exception for me, I supposed, thinking again.


  1. Indeed, Dr.Macademia! Thanks for visiting. :)

  2. So, rightly said..We are truly citizens of the world. We allege our loyalty to the land that feeds us, provides us shelter and protects us our loved ones.

    As far as the World Cup, I am not sure.
