Lightning bugs

I'm just sayin', lightning bugs was fun when I was a kid 'cause they couldn't really do you no harm like bees and wasps and spidery things.  We used to chase them lightning bugs all over the place and put 'em in Ball jars with holes in the lid.  Made a pretty nice lantern whilst the bugs was a'lightin'.  Seems to me, the bugs and Fourth of July fireworks was at their best about the same time each year.

Now politicians tend to act a lot like them lightning bugs.  They like to glow a lot around our patriotic holidays.  They puts on quite a show, but there's no real substance to 'em.  The main difference 'tween them and the lightning bugs is the bugs can't do you no harm.  I'm just sayin'...
