We The People

Are We The People? Our Constitution is a fact For many years it’s been intact Amendment two our favorite one To speak with freedom barring none An independence to declare That we are equal from our birth Proclaimed by Lincoln but the dearth Of lacking freedom of respect Torch lit marchers still move on a Miilliennium of hate returns Again the president affirms Let’s make America vague again To delve into ambiguity Alas, our history in pain Repeats itself as if to say Free speech of hate is not the way Societal Discontent Contest Sponsored by Brendan J.

I believe that ammendment has never been properly understood and thus, guns go on!! I am not against them, I just do not understand why they do not have tougher controls, especially on the assault weapons. Good one, Ralph.
