HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE UNITED STATES
I’ve written before
About the holiday July 4*
The issues discussed
Were presented seriously.
However, this poem is light
With a celebration of fireworks at night,
Loud and bold against the sky. Pop. Pop. Pop.
It’s the moment to sing
Happy Birthday! Ding. Ding. Ding.
To these United States
Whose consistent union we bring
From barbecues to parties at the pool
The festivities are really cool.
We clink glasses of wine and beer
So that we can cheer,
While getting together to talk.
This country is grand
So bring out the band
This is America
A land where much of the world
This is our strength…
Speak to you on July 18
