Fireworks Celebration

While the NSA rapes the 4th amendment and gives us no privacy 
While Snowden gets persecuted for telling us a great truth
While the IRS people get no jail time
While Benghazi gets swept under the rug
While we have no idea what’s really going on in Syria 
While the drones fly above us creepily and eerily
While security cameras are mounted on virtually every street corner
While the marathon bombings remain sketchy and shady
While the police run their checkpoints without warrants or probable cause
While Homeland Security fortifies Fenway and makes it terrorist-proof
While we’re forbidden to carry backpacks or coolers
While we’re subjected to random searches

Here we are
Watching the fireworks
Like a bunch of baboons
Stimulated by bright lights
And big explosions
