4th Of July (political)

Light the match,
Ignite the fuse,
As the evening sky fills with its reds, whites, and blues.
Sparks fly, as colors light the night sky.
And the veterans play there war tune as they celebrate the freedom of liberty for which they risked their life.

    Extremly Thoughtful and caring, I love the last line, in Canada we don't celebrate our nations birth on the same day as Vetrans (well their mentioned often) we save that for Rememberance Day. Both my great grandfathers were in world war two, so its something I respect.

    Liked your poem, and especially that you honored our veterans, whom many of us don't take the time to thank. Captain Cur
