The sky is blue
And the sun is shining

Mosquitoes dance in the blood ritual
Deep Woods Off fragrances the air.

The moon dances in a dark sky
And fireworks explode beyond the field

A little girl screeches in delight
And a boy watches in awed silence.

The colors of the rainbow expand and fall
Seconds pass and the boom arrives.

All around people sit or stand, lie down.
America. America!
