Ron Paul Lit The Fire!

Ron Paul Lit The Fire

Body bags arrived in the night,
Hidden from public view,
Quickly buried out of sight,
But their families knew.

One war, two, three and four,
Force was their solution,
There was more, much more in store,
Forget the Constitution.

Leviathan told us what to do,
The Bill of Rights was no more,
Slaves to the privileged few,
Totalitarian to the core.

But in this Orwellian night,
A little flame was lit,
Barely visible to the sight,
Behemoth didn't mind a bit.

But as Machiavelli grew in size,
The little flame began to spread,
And much to his surprise,
Patriots' hearts were not dead.

Soon the flame became a fire,
Raging from sea to sea,
Patriots out of the mire,
Proclaiming liberty.

Ron Paul lit the fire,
A modern Paul Revere,
A peaceful revolution his desire,
The Constitution held dear.

Ron Paul lit the fire!
Get up and take a stand!
Ron Paul lit the fire!
Come, join freedom's band!

goose bumps ed! Bravo. Your poem made me feel the same way I did when I read Chapter 13 of "Think and Grow Rich". Everyone should check it out, starting at page 212:

I AM is all that is. Everything else is malleable.

Same here.

Ed, Did you send a copy of this to Ron Paul?

Yup, it's that good, the kind of thing that should be on his mantel in Lake Jackson, Texas. Great poem, simple form, yet full of great imagery. Appreciated.

Sending to Ron Paul

Thanks, Steve, for the kind words. I would like to send this to Ron Paul. How would I go about it?
