TEXAS INDEPENDENCE DAY
It happened way back,
March 2nd was the day,
After hard-fought battles,
We became our own state.
We’ve been improving ever since,
And we’ve turned out pretty great.
Though there are still a few,
Who’d like us to secede.
Let’s celebrate where we are,
‘Cause we’ve got all that we need.
