Happy Independence Day!

For Poetry Friday, I decided to include a little Bruce Springsteen.  The Boss grew up in my area and still lives here today, so he is a hometown hero.

Independence Day (Bruce Springsteen)

Well papa go to bed now it’s getting late
Nothing we can say is gonna change anything now
Ill be leaving in the morning from st. marys gate
We wouldn’t change this thing even if we could somehow
`cause the darkness of this house has got the best of us
There’s a darkness in this town that’s got us too
But they can’t touch me now and you can’t touch me now
They aint gonna do to me what I watched them do to you

So say goodbye it’s independence day
Its independence day all down the line
Just say goodbye it’s independence day
Its independence day this time

Now I don’t know what it always was with us
We chose the words and yeah we drew the lines
There was just no way this house could hold the two of us
I guess that we were just too much of the same kind

Well say goodbye it’s independence day
All boys must run away come independence day
So say goodbye it’s independence day
All men must make their way come independence day

read the rest here

Have a great holiday!
