Patriot

‪Each morning, he’d unbox from his hovel in the corner of the parking lot. He’d yawn as if surrendering to the universe. He’d salute the multinational flags flying outside the casino and burble out some unrecognisable national anthem to the accompaniment of downtown traffic.‬

‪The security guard and early morning cleaners ignored the ex-military patriot – as his country did.
