Foundering Fathers Spirit of '76

Founding Fathers are worshipped and feared.
Perhaps they are too often Paul Revered.
So many changes on our American Sod;
The Constitution's not the Word of God.

Look at what the Nation now is faced with.
Perhaps the old girl could use a face lift.
It seems like the Union is falling apart.
That troubles your soul and breaks my heart.

Representative government is clearly failing.
How keep Ship of State in safe water sailing?
With Wall Street Bankers calling all the shots.
Our kids will have to piss into broken pots.

William's Whimsical Words:

William re-renews his call for a Second Constitutional Convention     New Constitution
