The Flag

Colors in the US flag are changing.
The red is turning to orange
The blue is fading to green
And the white gets whiter!



“Raised by wolves.”
What does that mean?
Human code for “rude”
human offspring behavior?
Irony in the story books:
The kids raised by the wolves turnout to be
a whole lot nicer than the kids
raised by people
and the people who raised them.
Human child-rearing gone bad–
Bullies raising bullies!
