America Stood Tall

Words to be used - asseveration, axiomatic, asseveration
The right to live and seek happiness is
an axiomatic truth for mankind.
And the American constitution’s
authors wrote down, that they were so inclined.
Their reasons were purely altruistic
they had no monetary incentive.
Yet, they felt it was important enough
to include those rights, as a preventive.
They all signed this asseveration
guaranteeing those basic rights to all.
For everyone has the right to be free
and on that day America stood tall.
Today I saw students march for that right,
a new generation, took up the fight.
