Just Words Declared Our Freedom Long Ago

Just words declared our freedom long ago,
Untouched by time, untenanted by will,
Leaning to the winds that eastward blow,
Yearning for their independence still.
There was no truth in them, not even then,
Harbingers of hope long since betrayed,
Ever the disguise of gentlemen,
Fashion for a yearly masquerade.
O judge them harshly, for they are but lies,
Unworthy of the dream that gave them birth!
Regard not their pretensions, but their ties
To those who would be lords upon the earth,
Hard souls as ever mouthing freedom's cries.

To The Founding Fathers
Your light still lingers in our distant morning,A star that we perceive across the void.We chart our passage by your words, still burningLong after your bright core has been destroyed.No longer do we speak of "natural" rights,Nor can we think that Reason guides our will.We've been through far too many gruesome nightsTo hope we have reduced our lust to kill.Yet hope remains the engine of our fire,Hope that someday all of us will beHappy in the least that we require:Well-fed, well-housed, safe, secure, and free.This dream we still pursue. Though darkness come,Your wisdom, hope, and courage through us run.

Just Think Of How It Was That Hot July
Just think of how it was that hot JulyUnder threat of being hanged for treason.Let yourself have faith enough to die,Yet let that faith be in the power of reason.Feel the heady fear of rash rebellion,Of chaos, blood, death, vengeance, mayhem, blight.Unleash with noble words that ancient hellionReigning cruelly over years of night.They turned out to be right, those bold, brave men.However, think what terrors faced them then.
