What do you mean when you say government?
An entity once held in high esteem?
Realization of some patriot dream?
A rule of law some said was Heaven sent?
Its reputation badly tarnished now
with statesmen promulgating globally
their deconstructionist philosophy
by which they may each promise disavow.
Small wonder should a citizen repent
that he had pledged his own allegiance to
a flag bestrewn with stars, red, white, and blue
when it no longer means what it once meant.
Let all who everywhere love liberty,
Stand up and fight till all at last are free.
