Pomp and Pageantry

I remember the grand parades Memorial and Independence Day All their pomp and pageantry Many faded jeans ago, so far away Our boys in uniform we'd be saluting For the good ole USA we'd be rooting Now it's political rancor at barbeques ~ From either end we're tooting

Hello Gershon … sadly so many wonderful traditions are disappearing and mostly because of the modern God being worshipped - the mighty dollar - thank you Gershon - Lindsay

That's the 'Almighty Dollar,' I believe -- at least here in the USA. Cheers, Gershon

It is so different this year; I hope to never see anything like this again in my life time.
