Fourth of July

The stars and stripes unite our great nation
the constitution that gives us our rights
fourth of July is a day for the people 
so let`s celebrate deep into the night

the feel of freedom as the sky lights up
bright flares flashing through the blackness

great whooshes and bangs all around
then we are plunged back into deep darkness

beer flowing and steak and salad for all
music blaring out of speakers nearby
while we stand watching the fireworks over head
feel so glad we were able to come by

there in the background is the roaring fire
the gorgeous smell of meat cooking away
people`s laughter and chatter can be heard
as we celebrate this Independence Day

Happy Independence Day to all my friends and their families in the states!
