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.
