To be patriotic; is patriotism,
The love of your country;
It is the subject of philanthropy.
It’s the love of one’s fellow man;
That is important.
The true patriot will say,
In any great crisis of the world…
They would rather their country
Come down in ruin.
Rather than be false
To the principles of justice,
And of the equality of all men
Before the law.
That is a true patriot.
