The Bearers - Poem by Zane Gilley

When Jefferson his Declaration wrote,
Encircled by the fellowship of friends,
Decrying tyrannies of bloody coat,
The freest men used violence for amends.
Can they be blamed for bleeding once again
This people of their rights and liberty?
That parchment lacked the power to restrain
The feds from growing exponentially.
Yet, in the lands of fabled Rivendell,
A band of hobbits, men, and dwarfs, and elves
Did vanquish Sauron's power forged in hell
By walking through the gates of hell themselves.
The fathers holding truths self-evident
Mis-bore the evil reign of government.
