Independence Day 

Independence day
Some of us celebrate our freedom
As a people and a nation
With political speeches
Military parade
Music and dance
Plenty food and different kind of beverages
 
Independence day
Some of us come together
And beautify our communities
By painting bridges
And cleaning road side bushes
 
Independence day
Some of us wear our national colours
And wave the national flag
With national pride
 
Independence day
Yet still, some of us vex, vex
Saying we political party is not in power
So we don't celebrating nothing
 
Independence day
It is part of our independent history
To celebrate or not to celebrate
The curse of division
 
Independence day
All of us know it is our independence
And we should celebrate it
We could even celebrate our independence
With a beach party too.
Why not do some celebration?
 
 Hudson George 2008
