                                   The Ink Is Dry

                    The ink well full to the brim
                    Quilled pen readily engaged
                     for the men of honor to sign
                  The Declaration of Independence

                    Life, Liberty and the Pursuit
                    Of Happiness, let freedom ring
                    Over this land as one nation
                    Under God Indivisible and
                    Justice for all 

                    Our country's strength and pride
                    No not one to falter or fail 
                    Wave evermore the stars and strips

                             The Ink Is Dry

July 3, 2015  The Ink Is Dry

A very patriotic write! Thanks for sharing, Mary!

The idealism was perfect at the time. Yet times move on and certain parts are outdated and don't hold resemblance to modernity. Nor a 'civilised' culture a culture where all people's should be equal. It'll be great to see the country live up to such ideals. We can but hope.

An excellent tribute to our nation. We need more people to speak up and take a stand.

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 7/23/2015
Like the constitutions of so many nations, the ink is dry and the intentions are clear... but circumstances and actions are so lacking! Once our societies become humanist then any semblance of Laws under God become somewhat redundant. A well-penned ode to what once was - and again could be if the great tide turns. xx

Your poem confirms the thoughts of the signers of that great document. Unfortunately, while many people believe those signers did so, the words, "Under God Indivisible," were added in the 20th century by those that believe we should have a religious state, something that the signers of the Declaration wanted to avoid by staking their lives on it.

The Declaration of Independence is being sorely pot to the test by the despot who currently resides in the White House these days.
