On the Mayflower, the Pilgrims bravely came
Seeking freedom from an oppressing land.
The people of thirteen colonies, holding hand,
Resented taxation without representation.
Like the people of other civilizations before,
They fought valiantly a revolutionary war.
On July 4th 1776, out of good men – a band
Signed the Declaration of a new free land.
On July 4th, 2007, ‘cause of the flag, I fell off a ladder.
Hence I joined the wounded for not being wiser:
No foreign cannon ball or gun, I see and agree,
Can threaten a spirit determined to be free.
