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!
