The Star Spangled Spanner

The Star Spangled Spanner

O!  say can you see, by the dawn’s early light… Bored, the crowd roared for they’d been taught to believe that songs never die.  But they were wrong, at least about that, for halfway through the refrain the fat lady choked and after the pause that became a national cause,  their song started to go all wrong.  Surely my retch would fetch common sense in the hearts of my fellow men.  But that was naive and it didn’t take long before that Star-Spangled Banner no longer waived o’er the Land of the free, and home of the brave. The other day, I called my mother and asked her if she wanted to go shopping at the mall. “No thanks,” she said. “I’ve had enough.”
