People Power

This is a land shared
By the many nationalities of this world
Whether it is the French, the Irish,
The Germans, the Dutch, the Italians, or the Russians 

This land is everyone’s
It does not matter who came here first
Whether it was the Native Americans,
Christopher Columbus, Walter Raleigh, or any of the Spanish conquistadors

This was a nation by the people for the people
And it has been that way
For the last three hundred years
And if it had not of been

For men like George Washington,
Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson,
And all the other Founding Fathers
This would be a land

Still under the rule of tyrants
But when it comes down 
To the United States of America
I support this nation and its people power
