The National Anthem retold simply

Our Sign With Stars On It

It’s morning now.
That thing we saw last evening — can you see it?
It was on the other side of that wall.
We could see its colors even though there was a fight happening.
In fact, the fighting gave off light that let us see it all night!
So, is it still there?

(Inspired by XKCD’s Up-goer Five and repeated singing of The Starspangled Banner to my infant daughter.)
