1776-2012=236

Two three's is six...

independently declaring our freedom from red coat dicks,

fourth of July fire in the sky chickens and chicks,

feathers forging treason lips,

forefathers thinking and thinking quick,

writing down our rights... small pox taking another one out during the night, inoculate quick pricks,

shoeless in the mud Washington's men watched the slippery silence slip,

never giving up... taking out knowledge first like a captain without a ship,

Indian guides sent on a spirit ride down the dip,

it's a slippery slope for hope when rules are a rip,

battlefields can't shield truth is the tip,

inalienable human rights screaming thru spit,

the time is now unless you just don't give a shit
