This War of Fathers I

The wanton gains of war shall swiftly pale to providence received through righteous ways. their pious aims let evidence prevail when avarice, for Heaven’s sake, essays. As Kings engage to claim uncharted soil, their mortal ranks confront with vast campaigns, as destiny unveils through blood and toil, it justifies their predatory reigns. Your acquisitions, gained through manifest, confirmed deceit through treaties born of greed, though irony shall put it to the test when Revolution rears to claim the deed. Fortunes gained through conquest disappear beneath the balance due to persevere. Beneath the balance due to persevere, taxation waged was rendered as unjust. The levied tolls, to satisfy arrears, inspired rebellion, chided in disgust. Autocracy, demanded by decree, all bear the charge and cower taciturn. No voice was gained relinquishing the fee, protection was provided in return. But burdens shared afford a sounding choice to cast a vote determining one’s fate. As occupation quelled a bounding voice, the turmoil boiled beneath the taxing weight. As levies flow into the Monarch’s grail, militias grow beyond his subject’s vail. Militias grow beyond his subject’s vail to rail against the burdens of the throne. Such tyranny imposed shall not prevail when liberty is paid in flesh and bone. Let not the price deter a bold pursuit for tyranny shall steal the breath of life, arise in arms from ‘neath oppressions boot to wield the whetted blade of freedom’s knife. But war is not without a mortal cost, it leaves all rationale in shadowed doubt. for freedoms gained when precious life is lost leave ironies triumphant in the bout. When death descends, devotion has no fear as independence hones rebellion’s spear. As independence hones rebellion’s spear retaliation drains immoral pride., for England’s call shall send a message clear; your liberty awaits the other side. Let thralldom wane as freedom rears to fight the libertines that shackle you in chains. Unite against the hypocritic spite to desecrate such eminent constrains. But know that freedom bears a heavy cost as mortal flesh concedes to crimes of war, though dust to dust when mortal life is lost, the sovereign soul shall reign forevermore. Let fear not quell, let freedom’s voice be heard, tenacity for cause stands undeterred. Tenacity for cause stands undeterred as agitation sparks the British crown. Their destinies shall face the passions stirred within the redoubts of this hilly ground. Oppression’s ire insures a deadly aim as forces on the battlefield align, the world has heard the shot for freedom ‘s claim as guns discharge into the Boston line. Though greater numbers cause you to concede, this tyranny has plowed a path to war. Since destiny is circumstance through deed, commitment holds the key to freedom’s door. Misfortune cedes to tyranny and strife when oligarchy brandishes a knife. When oligarchy brandishes a knife intensity shall rally to the cause, though arms of British loyals may be rife, ‘twas ne’er enough to tame militia claws. As Cavaliers assembled for advance to rendezvous in arms with coats of Red, a timbered bridge would fate the futile dance as cannon shard left oligarchy dead. Oh Carolina, liberty is earned as tyranny lies battered by the rail, you were the first, as declaration spurned, to let your flag of liberty unveil. In unity, consensus shall be heard with freedom’s call enamored into word. With freedom’s call enamored into word, a document of liberty unfurled, this Nation’s voice was destined to be heard as independence rang throughout the world. Let sovereign states consolidate the bold, let not the vice of bondage interfere, a paradox of freedom shall unfold as parity and balance persevere. The declaration predicates all free but compromise dilutes its moral core, though thralldom’s grip lies tethered by decree, its scripted ink left wide a corridor. Though liberty is forged from riddled rife, autocracy shall falter from the strife.
