Was it luck or a miracle that we survived through the night

It was Francis Scot Key who has said it best
On a night a young country was put to a test
By the wiles of fate he could witness it all
As the Red Coats bombarded with rocket and ball
Surely Fort McHenry wouldn't survive this night
They be doomed no matter how much they did fight
Come morning Key saw through smoke filled air
Not the Jack flying there but our flag and with flair
Red white and blue bunting plus firework displays
Are there to remind us of these earlier days
