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

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
