CNN American Made Dream
Oh say can see a Fourth of July miracle celebration
With a weathered down Ben Franklin doppelganger?
Spreading patriotic cheer to remember our glorious past,
Can you see God Bless America celebrating its 236th birthday?
Can Ole Ben electricity create fireworks on a CNN Network?
Where this nation unites on this day with American harmony
Singing aloud our national anthem, feeling Ole Glory’s melody
Inside them - standing with love’s diversity in this proud nation.
In an Atlanta visit to CNN can one bear an American Dream,
That in a miracle one can wish this nation a Happy Birthday.
Can a founding father doppelganger inspire the United States,
Where our inherited Declaration of Independence miracle
Is passed down to our children’s future in giving them hope.
Can CNN generate a picture image of an American flag
Made up from small placards held by American children,
With a “future” banner of red, white and blue under them.
When they drop the cards, kids faces show our future.
But alas can Ben Franklin do, what Ole Ben did in France,
Unite a nation to support this nation’s American Dream?
Can miracles tell a world that America will not surrender?
That the heart and soul of this proud nation -
Will fight forevermore together,
To overcome economic, social, and “ANY” pitfalls
In Ole Glory’s Stars and Stripes pure dedication.
