Independence Grinch

“This is boring? What do you mean?

It’s for our kids,

let them dream” Husband says

“But it’s a ruse,” Wife shakes her head

“A bunny rabbit hiding eggs of candy

A fat man sliding down a chimney

A fairy stealing teeth while kids sleep

Independence Day?

Pure fantasy. I’ve had enough

of these traditions already”

“Okay then, simply pretend

Think of it as a temporary tale

instead of some unending

holiday hell”

“I’ll try. Likely fail

I’m not really into holidays

as you can tell”

“Just take a red sip

A little more wine, less whine, babe

Let’s have fun

Watch the fireworks shine”

“Okay,” Wife smiles

“At least we’re all here together,

for a time”
