Thomas Paine

Thomas Paine

United States a Founding Father 

Born in Norfolk an honest English man
Me proud to be part of a true Ameri can

No summer soldier or sunshine patriot 
Spoke what he thought treasure no idiot

Tyranny like hell is not so easily conquered
harder the glorious conflict amour armoured

Still being inspiration in the army of freedom
his memory surely no not just my poor poem


Lover of freedom bringing common sense 
the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph


Hater of all the established churches 
Lover of the native Indian Iroquois
But no Christian burial for him
No Christian church would receive his body for burial
