As the Child was mesmerized by the sounds of the explosions echoing through the silent air,and the bursts of bright colors ,bleaching out the dark night sky. The boy grabbed his fathers hand and asked with excitement in his voice,“Dad,what are fireworks?
The Hobo with a reminiscing look on his face replies,” Son, Fireworks are Seagulls that have taken alka seltzer to relieve themselves from having severe gas pains they have received from eating to many stolen Bean Burritos from beach goers picnic baskets .
