Here, we do it in Fourteen lines or less!

  1. FANFARE

    Dusk has fallen
    and the call of Taps rings true.
    Day is done and our
    Independence remains secure
    for one more year.
    The skies darken and the first
    volley is placed.
    Evening laced with bursts of
    color and light, brightly;
    explosions in barrage
    preceding every sparkle,
    freedom’s torch ignited -
    twilight's last gleaming
    shines bright; nightly!

  2. STARS AND STRIPES

    Seven stripes of red bars on Old Glory signify the blood
    shed by those brave soldiers who gave their lives so we
    could be free and not enslaved as many nations in
    the world today. It remains the greatest sacrifice
    one can make to keep America free. It is an act of love:
    no tyrant can lay claim to the heart and soul of us.

    Six stripes of white bars represents the purity
    of America’s intentions when engaged in acts of war
    to not allow the white to be sullied with selfish motives
    but rather with a noble conviction that all should be free,
    that all citizens take pride in the nation that they love.
    The memory of all Americans is woven in this flag.
