A New Declaration

A NEW DECLARATION

When in the course of human events,

Wars escalating,
Enemies more,
States of suppression,
No moral core,

It becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another,

Parties are all rogue,
Politicians sell out,
Our votes do not count,
There’s runaway rout,

And to assume among the powers of the earth,

Nations are different,
There are different creeds,
Our leaders have failed us,
They no longer watch our needs,

The separate and equal station to which the laws of Nature and Nature’s God entitle them,

A new nation shall form,
Out of necessity,
Acquiring our ideals,
Expunging hypocrisy,

A decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation,

We are just not slaves,
We are all free born,
To contain this right,
Our nation reborn,

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness…
