Fourth Of July


Fourth of July, Independence Day for the United States, and
On the news political speeches praising the nations heritage, then
Reading of the declaration in deep proud voices and joyful singing.
The country will celebrate with parades and fireworks and ceremonies,
Hanging the flag outside their homes and having picnics with streamers.

On army bases there will be a salute of one gun shot for each state, and
From radios and TV the most popular song will be The Star Spangled Banner.

Jumping children with balloons red, white, blue floating, and
Under tents the barbecues will be cooking those big ball park dogs.
Love of the nation will be on every lip and in every single heart, then
Years of patriotic events will be re-enacted outside in a show of national pride.

Feelings on Our Independence Day

Today 15th August, we are celebrating The 67th Independence day of India. My country Has yet to witness the glimpse Of an enchanting flowering season, When winds would be flowing On the rhythms of changing scenes And Birds and Butterflies Would show their alluring dances To every singing and rejoicing souls with wings. 01 I want to celebrate my independence day And I am trying to bring a smile On my gloomy face But, how can I be cheerful and Relish the celebrations When the freedom of my country is in peril And perennial forces surrounding us Are trying to distract and destroy The peace and prosperity Of a developing nation. 02 How long, We can keep on watching And waiting and believing O’ Dream makers Your false promises of dreams Of a colorful and bright future, When a large number of dream makers Are in the drowning deep waters Of corrupt practices And some even of crimes Of serious nature. 03 Many still want to again secure Their vote banks by dividing people On caste and religion basis Even at the cost of the security Of the nation And at the cost of the forced drifting Of innocent inhabitants Who have left their ancestral homes In search of peace and a shelter Away from their dream place and homes and companions. 04 Many such dream makers Are standing knee deep In the intoxicating river of greed And are carving for For more and more endless wealth, For more power with arms and ammunitions’ And above all a bigger chair From where they can create Nonsense for the nation. 05 Some dream makers For their gains and selfish interest Choose many such persons Who are down to earth corrupt With deep colors and marks On their hands and Even on their faces too Which often proves them As worst criminals. 06 What a pity it is for a nation That has a mighty and strong army And a huge young generation Watching and looking helplessly The ongoing regular game of enemies On its borders And the game of enemies Who are trying to harm my country Within the land, in our own borders. 07 Both the outer and inner enemies Are constantly busy in planning And in creating Infiltration and war like scenes Created by the trained hate mongers As they work in disguise Of a peaceful citizen and Even sometimes In the disguise of a politician. 08 The enemy surrounding the nation Believes in snatching Peace not only of my country And of the Himalayas But even of the entire earth And believes in lies and In violence and destruction Of every kind As their masters wishes to Conquer the earth Not by spreading Love and Peace Like Buddha and Jesus But by Hate and violence At the cost of every possible destruction Of humans and even of Nature. 09 But these countries And the war mongers, who stands on the Foundation of falsehood and cheating Do not understand the strength And courage of our masses and nation and The moral strength and courage of our Armed forces Which is capable to give them A lesson, If some day it would be Necessary for saving the sovereignty Of this peace loving Nation. 10 Ravindra Kanpur India 15th Aug. 2013

Ode to an earthquake-w

What a day you chose, Grandma Mine!
To quake, to move, to shiver, to shake
Thereby to ravage, to savage, to shatter,
The celebrations of Mother India Republic Day.
A female snake eating her own children!
What bad karma those school children had done?
What configurations of the planets took place
In the natal charts of those thousand killed?

Million years ago you jolted and rocked,
Opening up the Atlantic & creating Indian Ocean,
Delinking India from Africa and Sri Lanka.
Those oceans are widening & the Pacific shrinking.
Will North America & Asia drift into each other?
*The twelve plates mate and hate each other,
Caribbean to Cocos & Indian to Eurasian.
Your wanton ways to be taken as blessing in disguise?
Your natural acts as great levelers? Or
HE made the world to fit best to create & destroy.

                      +++++++

*There are 12 twelve plates of our mother earth. It is based on the earthquake
that shook India's seaside area on 26th January 2000, the Independence Day of
India.

World Wide Web

Horizontal trying to manufacture soothing snowflakes
Inside this deserts globe the coolness, in their touch...
An escape from realities pangful dust; walking away from
These venues a breath and somewhat fresh air; generic
Fourth of July independence day time square banners
A collective shout their cup of tea turning the ignition untying
Wild mules five minutes gone by yet all be lost; the thrill
Past do it again, they scream popping pills as cutting
Dreams atop golden rust in mildewed editing floors making time
Forming lines, endless here you are another jolt joe, then off you go.

INDEPENDENCE DAY

Today was independence day in our country,
I dint know the exact date, I just woke up on it in the news,
Don’t call me unpatriotic, because of that.

I went to the shop, got a share of my breakfast,
I noted, the prices had doubled, 
I looked at the shopkeeper, I wondered if he knew.

I dint plan for that, now I was left with one way fare,
I walked to work, during the independence day,
Somewhere celebrations were being put in place.

In the independence day, I saw a notice in my mail,
Taxes and levies had gone up, it was circulated last week,
May be it was something to celebrate about, building the government.

How did it go? I don’t know!
Any difference from yesterday? May be none, may be worse,
For the first time, I had to think of it.

I went home at dusk, my wife asked if I knew,
“She so patriotic!” I wondered,
I sighed, and said I knew, just a lie she dint know.

I dint see any difference, just slaves inherited,
But to a worse master,
Don’t call me unpatriotic for that, it’s just how I see it.

I went to sleep, just like yesterday,
I saw it in the news, colorful celebrations,
Who knows what it cost, may be a hungry soul in the North.

I checked my site, and all other sites,
Cheers all over, with many “I love my country” texts,
I wondered whether it was for that or for independence?

Still want to

I still want to tickle your funny bone
So here it is
Do you want due or no due?
Would you rather play or you rather display?
Would you say or would you portray?
Haha
The Independence Day is coming
Do you know what we are independent of?
Lol
Would you think first or wait?
Ask first or ask later?
Are you raw or are you well done?
Could you bless or could you mess?
Would you wow or would you howl?
Would you chow or would you doubt?
How do you know what you are getting?
Running late, aren’t ya?
So what this time?
The alarm didn’t go off?
Forgot and dozed off?
Couldn’t get up?
Ahh you may need better explanations than that
Like I forgot to set my alarm, lol
Running out excuses?
Don’t worry
I’ll make one for you
Do you ever feel like you can do anything?
Do you feel that or think that?
If you think that then you can
If you feel that I don’t know
You may feel ill who knows?
Would you want to be a President?
Wouldn’t you rather be a congressman instead?
You get more wins that way
Would you speak or would you reach?
Know
I think I am done until next time
Would you wait or would you partake?
Ahh choices
Wouldn’t you know?

July 4th: Independence Day

Every year, America celebrates it annual birthday. It's been going on for years and years,
even before I was even born. This American holiday is so great, I wish it was Independence
Day forever.  On a 4th of July, there's barbecue, and a lot of festivities like a
horseshoe toss, pin the tail on a donkey, and stuff. The President of the United States of
America should be very proud. There's specials for the 4th of July, even on TV. There's
also a lot of reference of America's birthday, especially when everybody's still talking
about the Constitution of the U.S., the Bill of rights, and the Revolutionary War. I bet
we all took American history back in school. By day, all of us U.S. citizens are enjoying
the 4th of July festivities, and at night, fireworks are popping in the sky. What everyone
is seeing on the night of July 4th is a lot of fireworks on a summer night. everyone
should record what happened on July 4th and post it on YouTube.com. And when it comes to
celebrating Independence Day every year, it's a holiday for all of U.S. citizens to talk
about.I know I'm looking forward to doing something for Independence Day this year. And
when Independence Day ends as of midnight, it'll be an American holiday all of us U.S.
citizens will never forget.

Independence day

You told me to be strong 
said I would need to need to be strong 
I never actually thought that you would not be here to help me 
why why as I scream you were just so young 
I want you back I want you back 
Back with me back with me 
Back to where I can hold your hand and know that this world around me will be good 

I can still see that smile 
the one you gave me on independence day 
We will all remember you 
remember that you saved the world for all of us 
remember that your alive alive 
I still see you see you 
In my dreams and I dont dont ever want it to change

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2016

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2016

Are we truly independent?
or have we become enmeshed
overwhelmed by a desire.

A desire to afford the luxury
of independence to those
unwilling to fight for it.

Are we truly free?
or have we been taken captive
imprisoned by the impoverished.

Chained to the needs
of those who do not wish freedom
but inclusion without duty.

Are we still America?
or an amalgam of multi-colored
flags and visions. Tribal fiefdoms

demanding sovereignty
in the safety and sanctuary
of independence and freedom.

Live Free or Die

In New Hampshire their state motto is “Live Free or Die,”
And they will be celebrating that freedom this fourth of July.
At Mt. Washington the splendid fireworks will celebrate this nation,
And the band will play patriotic music to a standing ovation.

There will be cookouts, picnics, and ice cream across the land,
And in the “Live Free or Die” state, the party will be grand!
The band will play the “Stars and Stripes,” and the people will cheer…
Thanking God for our independence, and another great year!

The 4th of July

July 4th 1776
The birth of a nation
Decreed by the 56

Thirteen states
With their men of wisdom
The United States
The land of freedom

Precedence in place
Many presidents will grace
Their White House of power
This new American race

From all corners they came
For liberty and land
That's made this new nation
Oh so grand

My last Stanza says
To this American place
It's in my heart
To one day grace

 
" Have a great Independence Day my American Soupers "

Trending Change

Inflicted is this society
Of depicted truths to matter 
Does it matter
When every life doesn't matter to the same accord

Accordingly, slavery was abolished 
To what effect when our minds are currently enslaved
When the only awakening comes from the mourn of graves 

Theres so much to be saved, this is known
Every life does matter
Yet the matter has no volume to skin tone

When the only way is the only way
To band together
Ensuring the importance never fades
In creating the trending phase
Of change 

Important Phrase!
Black Lives do matter
Our skin far from white 
So the minority as a whole must also lather
The will to stand up for this pigmented matter

Black, White, Hispanic 
What ever you may be
We are all created in light of a womb
To the luck of a swim up stream 
In similarity of the blood we bleed
N the placenta we once did feed

Linked in red  
The blood shed of our being

Declaration of InterDependence

When in the Course of Earth’s climatic events, 
it becomes necessary for  Earth to resolve political bands 
which have connected Her with human nature, 
and to assume among the powers of Earth, 
separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Earth’s Health entitle them, 
a deep respect for the opinions of others requires 
that we should declare the causes which impel us to this Declaration of Interdependence.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, 
that all Earth’s Tribes are primally regenerative, 
that we are endowed by Elders with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life as Love, 
Liberty from Terror and Liberty to Nurture, 
and the evolution of  CoOperative Health as Happiness.
That to secure these rights, 
Governments are instituted within and between Earth’s Tribes, 
deriving our just powers through therapeutic discernment of the governed, 
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of Healthy Life, 
Liberty, 
and CoOperative Happiness, 
it is the Right of Earth’s Tribes to alter or to abolish it, 
and to institute new Government, 
laying its cooperative foundation on such ecological principles 
and organizing its health-powers in such form 
and multicultural function, 
as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Health Safety and Loving Happiness. 

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that regenerative nutrient-systems long established 
should not be changed for light and transient causes; 
and accordingly all experience has shown, 
that human nature is more disposed to suffer, 
while evils are sufferable, 
than to right ourselves by evolving the self-governing functions 
to which we are more accustomed. 
But when a long train of anthrocentric abuses and usurpations of power 
used as a weapon, 
evinces a design to reduce polyculturally enriching outcomes 
under anthrocentric despotism, 
it is Earth’s right,
it is EarthTribe’s regenerate duty, 
to throw off such pathologies of government, 
and to provide new co-mentors for future health and security.

Such has been the patient sufferance of these DNA/RNA Tribes; 
and such is now the necessity which constrains us 
to cooperatively reweave our former Competing Systems of Government. 

The history of the present nation-states is a history of repeated injuries 
and usurpations of cooperative governance powers, 
all having in direct object the establishment of mutual immunity 
and anthrocentric hubris. 

To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
We have refused Earth’s Assent to Love’s Natural Laws, 
the most wholesome and necessary for good polycultural outcomes.
We have discouraged governments from passing laws of immediate and pressing climatic importance.
We have refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of all Earth’s Tribes 
and EcoSystems, 
a right inestimable to them 
and formidable to tyrants only. 

We have dissolved entire species and healthy ecosystems repeatedly, 
opposing with manly firmness Earth’s matriotic rights of  healthy evolution.

We have refused WinWin ecotherapeutic orthopraxis for a long time, 
nation-states remaining in the mean time exposed to all the WinLose dangers 
of aggressive invasion from without, 
and terrorist convulsions within.

We have endeavoured to remove and destroy indigenous populations of these States; 
refusing to  encourage their healthy migrations, 
and appropriating Earth’s Commons through commodification.

We have affected to render the Military independent of WinWin therapeutic outcomes 
and competitively superior to Civil powers 
of active political and economic cooperation.

We have combined with other nations 
to subject ourselves to a jurisdiction foreign to Earth’s regenerative constitution, 
not acknowledging symbiotic processes 
of mutually subsidiary and complementary evolution.

We have not protected ourselves from punishment and defiance 
by deep learning rewards of empathic trust 
and healthy love of truths within nutritious beauty.

We have plundered our seas, 
ravaged our Coasts, 
burnt our habitats, 
and suboptimized the lives of our diverse nonverbal and marginalized residents.

We have supported domestic insurrections, 
terror, 
suffering, 
anger, 
fear,
hate amongst us.

A Princely Species 
whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, 
is unfit to be the ruler of Earth’s free Tribes.

Nor have we been wanting in petitioning our governors. 
We have reminded them of the circumstances of our co-arising emigration 
and settlement here on Earth. 
We have appealed to humane justice and empathic trust, 
and we have conjured them with the ties of our DNA/RNA kindred 
to disavow these usurpations, 
which would inevitably interrupt our connections and transactions. 
Many leaders are deaf to ecosystemic justice and consanguinity. 
We must, therefore, 
acquiesce in the necessity to hold governors, 
as we hold all creations, 
Potential Allies in Struggle, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, in General Earth Commons, 
Assembled Occupiers, 
appealing to the Supreme Judge of Earth’s Regenerative Health 
for the rectitude of our intentions, 
do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good Creations of Earth and Sun,
solemnly publish and declare, 
That these uniting national ecosystems are, 
and of Right ought to be Free and Interdependent States; 
Absolved from all Patriotic Allegiance to Matriotic Suppression, 
and all political and economic disconnection between human and nothuman natures 
is and ought to be totally dissolved; 
and as Free and Interdependent States, 
we have full Power to levy and conclude Peace, 
contract EcoAlliances, 
establish CoOperative Commerce, 
and to do all other Acts and Things which Interdependent States may of right do. 

And for the support of this Declaration, 
with a firm reliance on the protection of Earth’s Providence, 
we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, 
our Economic Fortunes and our sacred Political Honor.

Fireworks and Fireflies

Fireworks and Fireflies

The sounds and smells of war
 jubilation at its end,
blended irony of history.

Acrid stench of gunpowder
choking sound of taps
hover over hallowed ground.

Gallantry’s entombed
silenced in their duty
whisper from the past.

This Fourth Of July

This 4th Of July To my fellow Americans, during this 4th of July. I have a thought.. . Here's why… When we salute our flag ever so grand. Our country's foundation is sinking in "quicksand." This is because. From God... We're way "off course." Driven by lust, greed and an "immorality force ." Our ungodly government continues to rule. Anything of God has been removed from the school. We hear of "separation of church and state." Anything of God... Many people seem to hate! America! Listen to what this message is about! Everything of God is slowly being taken out! We must return to Jesus!... He gives true freedom indeed!. The truth word of God’s . Our country must read! Living for God is worth the cost! Without HIM... America is forever lost!

Four Score

Four Score
By Franklin Price
7/4/2016

Four score and two hundred years ago
Our founding fathers signed the page
Declared their independence
Freedom then was all the rage

No longer were they willing
To bow to England's will
Their cup was running over
They had more than had their fill

They had the sons of liberty
To back this massive chance
Sang together to  the music
Danced the Revolution dance

Have you ever wondered
Where we would be today
Without that Declaration
When our founding fathers had their say ?

July the Fourth

July the Fourth
By Franklin Price
7/1/2016

July the fourth we celebrate
The red, the white and blue
And all that this great country
Brings to the world and me and you

Our founding fathers pledged their lives
Their freedom did declare
July the fourth of seven-six
Just imagine you were there

No longer were they willing 
To bow to England's rule
They signed the Declaration
With pen their lives did pool

To stand up to the power
That controlled their lives back then
To begin a revolution 
They prayed to God that they would win

Seems we have forgotten
What it took to walk that line
To dedicate ourselves to principles
The declaration did define

Now would be a good time
To read what they declared
You should read it very closely
To see how we have fared

The parallels we're living
You may find a big surprise
To me it's very evident
Just have to open up your eyes

Need look at what has happened 
Look what government has done
It might as well be England
We must resolve to end their fun

After all we are the people
Who allow the ones who rule
To complain yet to continue
Makes us collectively a fool.

What Happen

What happen
What happen to the Fourth Of July Paraid?
What happen to the flags that led the parade? 
What happen to all the floats and funny clowns
What happen all the old cars and the fire trucks.
What happen to the bands that played the music.
Where did it go? 
No more they say it might offend someone.
Well if you are offended Please think who's country, you're in.

Taking My Place

To the man who shouted at me 
One morning on my way to the gym:
‘I’d like to be like you!”

You want to be like me.
You want to be me.
To take me just like that.

You want to just go up to a superstore
And buy me right out like a commodity.
Very good.

You want to take my place!
To just replace me
The way seasons replace themselves.

You want to have it all.
All of it.
The things I have;
The things I do;
The things I have achieved,
My desires, my dreams.

You would like to be in my shoes,
Look here are my shoes.
I’ve taken them off for you
So you can wear them.
Take wear and see
If they fit you well
Like Cinderella’s shoes,
Make sure they fit well
And make sure they
Don’t pinch you at all.

Here is my car drive it.
My house, you can have that too.
Live in it, sleep on my bed
And see if you can survive
The grim nightmares.

See here is my hat
Wear it and see if it fits
If it does, check if your head
Can carry the things
That go on in my mind.

You like my dress?
Fine.
Here have it,
But I hope you get comfortable
With my odour.
Or were you thinking I have none?
O yes, unlike you I do have odour
Underneath some parts of me.
The real reason people 
Wear deodorants and perfumes;
It is what dogs sniff at when they meet you.
My odour isn’t unpleasant though
Because I take my time to bathe very well.
So you can have my dress too.

You like to go to the places I go
You are sure you can cope
With the coldness of those places?

You like my friends too
You can have them
Together with the wines and women.
But be ready to pay the price
And carry many hang-over.

You think you know me
Enough to take my place,
To enjoy all the things I’ve gained,
It is fine, just take,
Alongside all my bliss.
And pains.

You really want to take my place?
Always remember that 
Like my fathers of old, very great men, 
I was only a memory just like you.
