Our fathers died, to free the land
From royal rule and unjust hand
Their blood to water Freedom’s tree.
Their sons did rise, to claim the fore,
Daughters strong, generations they bore
New battles fought, peace seldom free.
In time united, a nation did rise
A people flawed was freedom’s prize
Yet in their fervor, a truth does deny.
As a nation grew new royals arose
Constitution once power endures painful throes,
Will Freedom’s bonds soon die?
Corruptors of truth, who sought to lead
Twas cruel jest they played on those in need
Tomorrow’s today to be yesterday’s pain.
Came forth a man, no king be he
Brash and bold, he bent not his knee
He cast challenge in words many thought vain
No poet be he, this true son of the land
He set to the burden, his promises in hand
To meet false Lords of the nation, who defied his exception
They attacked with blunt arrows, demanding his prize
Yet thinking him fool, they blinded their eyes
But true to his promise, he saw through their deception.
Day by day to do battle, his goals to set right
Each foray he makes brings their treason to light.
Sins of the royals, no longer lay hidden.
To stand with our leader as imperfect as me
Hard tasked with challenge, our battles to be free
To win a united America once harshly forbidden.
