Today’s Writing Prompt: Write A Patriotic Poem or Song
Our writing prompts this week are focused on July Fourth, and other recognized independence days around the globe. And, as we all know, patriotic poems and songs are essential to independence day celebrations. So, today let’s write a patriotic poem or song.
Quick thought that’s worth considering: One can still resist an oppressive regime, group, or institution, and be patriotic. In fact, one could argue that resistance of oppression is itself a form of patriotism. True, many patriotic songs may not embody this thought per se… but it still might be a fun exercise to identify those patriotic songs you’re familiar with that have roots in resistance, as you complete this writing prompt.
