Independence Day

Clipart image of a redcoat.

Inspired by Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) of 11 March 2023, irregular.

When those nasty Americans roared,
Good King George sent his troops off to war,
But in tunics bright red,
Those yanks soon shot them dead,
Now you’re stuck in your own mess, you did it all yourselves and you can’t go blaming anybody else!

  1. First we had to fight the redcoats to escape tyranny, to gain our independence, and to create our democracy.

    Now we have to fight the red states to keep our independence, to preserve our democracy, and to avoid tyranny.
