Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July

And of course they would lie

and make you think this is your day

But truth be told, its never told, so say

Nothing about this time of decadence

And acknowledge that no one has independence

BBQ and alcohol and explosives are the focus

how ironic that this nation was founded and built

by the same type of things plus political hocus pocus

they struggle to be real and keep it 100 like Wilt

So party it up and celebrate whatever you wish

Just don’t lie to yourselves and call it independence

  1. Very strong poem and sentiment ….I recall a song lyric that said “freedom is just another word for saying…I’ve got nothing left to lose”….thanks for sharing your poem.
