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 burning
Long 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 nights
To hope we have reduced our lust to kill.
Yet hope remains the engine of our fire,
Hope that someday all of us will be
Happy 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 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 tiesTo those who would be lords upon the earth,Hard souls as ever mouthing freedom's cries.
