The Constitution

by Nancy Harb Almendras
(DA Germany)

We, the people, strive for perfection

To form a union, both peaceful and strong,

How prescient our fathers on reflection

Were, as they strove for Blessings to right a wrong.

We are free to worship as we so please

And can say what we want, freedom of speech

Right to redress, no matter what the need

Freedom of press, government can not breach.

People have the right to keep and bear arms

But also the right to liberty, life,

Our fellow citizens we must not harm

But we live an endless, ignoble strife.

We must come together, as once before

And rid our nation of this senseless gore.
