WHAT MAKES THE MIGHTY GREAT?

What makes the mighty great is not its power,
But it’s soft touch as gentle as a flower,
Which although provoked does not in violent rage,
Lash out as would a tiger in a cage,
It matters not who her Presidents are,
They’ll come and go like a dying star,
Laws remain as the people have declared,
That determine freedom forever to be shared.
Though freedom lost in times of violent war,
Must at wars end be again restored,
Lest Presidents become more powerful men,
Than those Dictators freedom doth condemn.
For none should have the power to defy,
The people’s right to proclaim what they require.
