Our Power

Our Power

19 November 2010

We have the Bill of Rights and reason,

Not trite laws that make every act treason.


Tho everybody’s glad it there and it’s thorny like a cactus,

Congress shall make no law regulating religious practice.

As paradigms morph and the fundamentalists keep trying their best

Still officers shall be bound by oath or affirmation, but no religious test.

Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech.

Personal expression’s within everyone’s reach.

The government may not violate

The right of the people to congregate.

The People have a right to redress

Against any governmental excess.


This thought make liberals come unhinged,

The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.


No Soldier shall, in time of peace abide

In any house without the owner allied.


Whether participating in business or leisure

People have a right against unreasonable search and seizure.

No Warrant shall issue but upon probable cause

Supported by oath or affirmation that draws

A description of the place to be sought

And the persons or things to be brought.


No person shall be subject for the same offense

Twice, nor a witness against self-defense,

Nor be be deprived of life, liberty or property

Without due process of law and formality.


In all criminal prosecutions, regardless of style,

The accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy trial,

And not to worry

About the jury.


In Suits at common law, trial by jury shall not be thinned

And no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise re-examined.


Excessive bail shall not be required or afflicted

Nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel punishments inflicted.


The enumeration of certain rights shall not be construed

To deny or disparage others retained by the multitude.


The powers not delegated to the United States administration

Are reserved to the States or the people of the nation.

Reasons for the constitution are annihilated

When the rights of the people are violated.
