Angelo and his pals
have cast the hood
in a sulfurous haze
with their illegal
cherry bombs,
bottle rockets,
ash cans,
and squibs.  

It’s a war zone out there.  

Angelo knows Philly’s
where all the
good stuff started,
and he’s going
to fill the night
with fire,
and loads of boom,
just because he can.  

Eat your hearts out.  

KA—BOOM!
KA—BOOM!
KA—BOOM!

Thanks dear Alison,

It's past midnight, and raining.  Angelo's still at it.

When Ka-Boom means celebration and not war, then may it last the whole night! Well ... I think I might profit from Alison's offer ...

Enjoyed this.

Love,
Margherita

Well writ!...

from the city where is 'all started'!

[I wish this was the 'America'/'democracy'
  that the 'founding fathers' envisioned
   though!]

Explosive applause for this 'penning'!!

Thanks dear Alison,

For the ear plug thought.  I enjoy the noise, it lets me know the hood is alive and well.

Thanks XGarapanX,

Angelo and Frodo are second cousins, twice removed.

It sound like they are enjoying the fourth in Kapolei.  That's great.

Thanks dear Margherita,

The noise doesn't bother me.  I have bad ears from too much boom--boom years ago.

Thanks Secondhanddreampoet,

Thanks for the explosive applause.  It is what the founding fathers had in mind--what with an African American and a women as possibly leading the nation.
