>> A Birthday Message To America
>>
>> Happy Birthday from the grave,
>>
>> To the land of the free and the home of the brave.
>>
>> I say these words not in jest,
>>
>> Because I believe our country is still the best,
>>
>> But many good people have fought and died
>>
>> So their loved ones could go for a weekend ride
>>
>> To anywhere across this beautiful land,
>>
>> To climb a mountain, or lie in the sand.
>>
>> To do what they want, without any fear
>>
>> That someone might whisper "The enemy is here!"
>>
>> So I urge you all to enjoy this Fourth,
>>
>>> From east to west, from south to north,
>>
>> But reflect for a moment on those brave folk
>>
>> Who helped to keep the word freedom from becoming a joke.
>>
>> So to all of you, from we who gave,
>>
>> Happy Birthday America -- from the grave.
