Happy 4th of July!

The red and white and blue of tapestry American
Is memory of freedom and the states united when

A war was fought for independence starting with a word
Of declaration unifying what we want assured.

The liberty to think and feel and do what we might want
As long as harming others isn't hiding in the taunt.

The politics of government are not oft qualified
By thoughts of love though Patriots should spread the message wide.

To want a land of freedom means to love its residents
Including all the differences that beautify our sense.

Perhaps today 'midst bbq or bathing by the beach,
We think of all the lessons loving citizens could teach.

For all the rights of freedom should affect the words we say,
While fireworks are bursting Happy Independence Day!
