A Peeping Tom's Preamble

In Honor of Independence Day --- We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America ~ In Honor of Roy Jerden's Contest: "Malapropisms and Mondegreens" A Peeping Tom's Preamble of the United States --- (Read and weep, as down you scroll!....) "Weedy peepholes, of this excited state inordinate form of amoral fate perverted union, of flabby lushes....(brewin') insures ecstatic fertility, providing the comical defense, emoting of gin, will wear (no sense!) liquor and confessing of libation creeping into our shelves (invasion!) his dour posterior does shame and tabulate this (inferior) constant situation for the (law's) unsightly state of amoral's cause !"
______________________________ Oh dear.........Forgive me !! Only for Roy, would I stoop so low! LOL !

    Congratulations on your fine win, Carrie! It took some courage to try and create a fractured preamble. Cheers, Roy.

    In Re Your Beauty's Opening Unto This Poe, Priceless Beautiful Carrie Richards: But First We Must Sail To Africa And Return In Chains Thousands Of Human Slaves. Then We Must Kill As Many Indians As Possible Afore Slaughtering The Mexicans Also. Then, We'll Have What's Her Name Make Us A Flag While Dividing The Spoils Of It All Amongst Ourselves Yet, Leaving A Few Crumbs For The Peasants Aka, Common Man After Piping As Pumping This Dream Of Dreams In Their Black Hole Plights ? Manifesting Their Childrens Childrens, World Wide Webs, Destiny's ˜ LuvJohn
