"Divided we stand but stand for our home"


All Roads Lead to Rome

The republic yields to Republicans
A four-year-renewable emperor
As strong as those ancient ones ever were
The winners the sinners and publicans

Watch what you say they don't need a reason
To whisk away those who would annoy them
Down Gitmo way they say they destroy them
Hang on like a flea to your liberty

You'd better pray they don't call it treason
Have a nice day just smile and enjoy them
They can be funny spending your money

That is to say the money you do not
And never will have because they forgot
It belongs to you but what can you do?

"Not in my name" was the name of the game
But not anymore they say this means war
And take down your name as someone to blame

That which we hold dear is worth fighting for
Gitmo or get less all roads lead to Rome
Divided we stand but stand for our home

A kindred spirit, Stevie, and a man of clear thought.

Like a fine pastry, you have layered this with something to taste with each bite.

"Gitmo or get less all roads lead to Rome" An injection of word play/humor suits this marvelous message, no doubt lost on some. ah, well...

I'm with you, sir... for you, entirely! I bow to your far more effective delivery. Oh, and don't think your inventive rhyme is lost on the likes of me... "reason... treason"

I will echo your words... 'you are a friend'... katy xox

Sadly for the world, his words came true. On November 21, 2007, Barack Obama said, I truly believe that the day I'm inaugurated, not only the country looks at itself differently,..
