Happy Birthday America


Happy Birthday America


enjoy celebrating your freedom
beneath that canopy of fireworks
(invented by the Chinese)
. . . don't waste
a single thought
on our economic entanglements

or how it seems we're owned by them

- just let yourself
stay distracted
by all the shiny things

(while you're at it
try not to think about
how cliche it has become
to celebrate freedom
by blowing things up)
