4th of July 1776

Many years ago

Actually decades ago

No, No centuries ago

Soldiers fought for our independence

Not from the French but from the English

July 4th 1776

Declaration of Independence signed, sealed and delivered

Each year we celebrate our Independence

Indeed a Happy Birthday to you

Its a time for reflection and celebration

We should not forget our history

The hard fought battles

In court rooms and battlefields

Victorious at last

Through shear determination

We claimed our land

Which we call our own from sea to shining sea

Happy Birthday USA
