The Flag of Our Country
On the flag of our country, a black barking dog. Painted on the side of that dog, a large map. On the southwestern corner of that map, the outline of a bay. Moored calmly within that bay, a three-masted schooner. Embroidered on the sails of that schooner, the outline of a man. Dressed all in black. Gripped in the left hand of that man, a leash. Snarling and straining at the end of that leash, a brown dog. A wild and angry brown dog. Barking, always barking, the anthem of our proud country.
