That’s what Kurt Vonnegut called our beloved National Anthem. H.P. Lovecraft preferred to sing the original “To Anacreon in Heav’n” rather than the unsingable, violent, pro-slavery lyrics everyone else was doing. And now quarterback Colin Kaepernick has decided to remain seated while it is being brayed. Various flag kissers have condemned Kaepernick for doing so, and the Rude Pundit replies, using language. Bonus, suggested by John Sladek:
Ofay, can you peeETA: And a veteran’s view, from Jim Wright
thru the dong’s surly blight
that you prob’ly inhaled
at the toilet’s last cleaning?
Happy birthday, yarndancer53
