Fourth Of July

Forget not those who sacrificed that we might enjoy this special day.

Our cherished freedoms we owe to them who in hallowed sepulchers lay.

Undulating o'er this blessed nation the Grand Old Flag does yet wave.

Resolute Founding Fathers and ordinary men so very true and brave,

Took extraordinary actions to liberate us from tyranny and oppression.

Hereafter, may each generation be free to celebrate without suppression.

Over all the nation this day folks will celebrate with picnic and parade;

Fireworks will thrill and boring speeches by politicians will be made.

Jubilation should ring from towns large and small from shore to shore,

Until the sound of liberty resonates about the globe with a resounding roar!

Let true patriotism reign not only on this day but all others that ensue!

Yeehaa! Yippee! Yahoo! Yea! Happy Fourth of July to every one of you!

Entry for Kim Merryman's "Celebrate Independence" Contest (28 June 2015)
