July 08, 1991|By George Neff Lucas

We all love parades marching by

But dare one begin to ask why

We cheer evermore

` For a lopsided war

Reborn on the Fourth of July?

Historians, you may recall,

Thought Abe was the first one to fall

Till somebody reckoned

, He might have been second --

But Zach wasn't zapped after all.
