Bang-bang! Ka-boom!
We celebrate
Our national
Independence date,


The Fourth, with
Firecrackers and
The marching of
The Legion Band


America:
It makes us think
Of hot dogs, fries,
And Coke to drink.


The shade is hot
The little ants
Are busy, but
Poor Fido pants


And Teddy dozes
In a pool
Of fur she sheds
To keep her cool.


from A Child's Calendar by John Updike
