In honor of the 4th of July, you are challenged to write a patriotic poem. Americans can certainly center their poems around this traditional U.S. holiday, but you don’t have to be from America to participate. No matter where you call home, try your hand at writing poem about the love you have for your country. Or simply make typical 4th of July activities the focus of your poem.

Make it funny, make it sweet, write a haiku or a sentimental ballad. Write about picnics, fireworks, stars and stripes, or anything remotely related to the day you celebrate your country.

So put on those patriotic helmets and tackle it!
