Wake Up and Salute the Flag

I'm as patriotic as the next guy
but we're turning into

It happened as I slept
I opened the blind
and there it was

Vast flag hung on
a hook and ladder truck
honoring fallen fire-fighters

There were a hundred or so
firemen in uniform,
It's been a gruesome six months
two unsafe living spaces burned
 record-breaking fatalities

The Flaneur
in his precarious lodgings
salutes our fireman
