Xenophobia legalised

Just because you take the trouble of standing up for National anthem
Just because you salute your national flag
Just because you gratify your ego by searching for significance
in such external objects of songs and bits of coloured clothes
because you can’t find it in yourself
Just because you bash people who are deemed enemies of state
Or because you do all this simply because you were told to
since the first day of school
does not makes you a nationalist!!
It simply makes you the protagonist of the most blatant
most inhumane and the most accepted form of xenophobia and racism!
And a party to all savageries
Inflicted upon humanity in it’s name! 
And you wonder why nationalism is
the last refuge of scoundrels??
