United

Many a score, a time to recall 

Yearly festivities in namesake alone

Amendments gain weight on a bloated body

That should have sunk long ago

 

No longer we declare independence

But a bold statement of unitedness

Absolute in resolution, equality for each life

liberty unquestioned, with justice impartial

And the fulfilment of happiness not forgotten

 

The new wonton guards, mock guardians

Mongering

over the best approach to refute change

Who trump by small percentage

and rule of the free people

Who offer protection

in the form of divine providence

And only trust where it is written.

 

Honour a dream’s growth to reality

In memoriam of fathers long gone

building from the shoulders of wise men

Think forward, and allow an evolution

shift focus from independence to togetherness

Towards a united day.
