Making America Great Again Rispetto
by Michael Romani

A nation of faith gathers to listen close
To the words of us standing as together
To the president that most of us have chose
Reuniting to be healed and become better

Joining our hands in prayers and affirmation
A clarion call for our confirmation 
Commitment to the ideals that we all live for
For the beliefs that we Americans adore
