In Dependence day!!

Fourth of July:


The beach was

thick with the smoke,
of ordinances

going off with a bang,

and ordinances

being broken.

_ \ /_
A black Velvet sky _\ | /_ /|\

painted with, /^\
a miasma of freedom

bursting at the screams. _ \ /_
Of course, every single blast

was manufactured, / \
in China, but we still

used them to celebrate,
our independence from

foriegn profiteering.


"ALL THE ROCKETS RED GLARE,
THE BOMBS BURSTING IN AIR,
GAVE PROOF THROUGHT THROUGHT,
EVEN OUR FLAGS ARE MADE THERE!"


Gunpowder burst

brought ooooH'S,

and Ahhhh's here,
and crys of pain,

and death in Iraq.
Seems every decade

has a war to blow

things up over!


But children leapt,

and cartwheeled,
with much delight

under tropical,
falling stars that night,
and parents acted

just like kids again,
playing with matches

and punk sticks,
and making a racket

louder then,
they would ever allow

thier kids to make.


Gardens of fireflowers,

by the thousands,
bloomed in the

ebony topsoil

of the heavens,
shedding petals of light,
until the silence

of July 5th settled,
over us all,

like the debris washed up,
across the beach,

come morn....

come mourn!

'Gardens of fireflowers' love that :)

Fourth of July is one of my most favorite holidays, always has been. It's the one time of year that my whole family would do something together and have fun... light off fireworks. My dad rarely did anything with us, the family, so it was special... and fun to see him happy for a change. :)
