fireworks are bombs bursting in air

Enjoyed the show as usual.. and wanted to agree with the caller who said that fireworks represent warfare.. Now I might enjoy fireworks just as much as you, Abe, but I can also see that they do symbolize in a way the sounds of battle, in the same way that the parades that we have on many of our holidays might originally represent marching armies... It's just some of the militarism that's embedded in our society....  

Aimee Mann lyric

I ran across this lyric from Aimee Mann last night:

today's the 4th of july
another june has gone by
and when they light up our town i just think:
"what a waste of gunpowder and sky"
