Real America

Light up the sky
with pretty colors,
red, white, and blue;
pop the air with ‘em,
break barriers, it’s Sunday.

Watch the colors fly
high up in the sky,
razzle dazzle ‘em,
make the moon cry.

Forget the why,
it’s all a gas,
Two-bit Small Fry,
let’s celebrate!

    Like this a lot. First three lines weren’t promising, but I love the *burstiness* of it, the break-out-ness… love the Americana vernacular too… some really strong lines, love these:

    pop the air with ’em,
    break barriers, it’s Sunday

    razzle dazzle ’em
    make the moon cry

    Awesome!
