I Am The American Constitution


Dedicated to the
American Constitution

I am the American Constitution.
Do you know my name
There is not to be a substitution
I am not to be changed

I am the American Constitution
I do not waver in what I preach
For common men are my leaders
It is God’s wisdom that I speak

I am the American Constitution
For my people I am here to protect and serve
The ones who are weak among the government
But though me they can still can be heard

I am the American Constitution
I was blessed with a soul of my own
Was born from a bloody Revolution
Making my peoples demands known

I am the American Constitution
My life is ending my words are being ignored
There is a Fascist government revolution
Satan himself is knocking at my door

I am the American Constitution
And my name is being marred
In the grips of unlawful persecution
Because a government wants me disbarred

I am the American Constitution
My fathers spoke of being free
Children get to know my contributions
Your voice is the only thing protecting me.

If I am sent to my execution
Where will that lead my country’s soul
For I am the American Constitution
That keeps American’s Government under control

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
