God Bless, We Are Free | A Poem

I am a child with a sparkler

Waved with such flair

While cannons burst rainbows

High in the air

 –SparklerID2001

The night smells of sulfur

Hot dogs and grills

The warm summer’s eve

Gives the highest of thrills

 –

Our moms all sit laughing

The dads drink their beer

The kids all play games

Round this family affair

 –

The Red, White and Blue

And warm apple pie

God Bless, we are free

On this Fourth of July

“God Bless, We Are Free”
