For Bill of Rights Day

One Billion Rising Rising Park - What of the Rights of the Unborn Daughter?
For Bill of Rights Day
by Michael Doyle

To embark on teaching history of the past
Engages us with the things that last
The best way of doing this of course
Is to teach things right from the source

Before going further, let me just say
Happy and best of Bill of Rights Day
It's truly no real kind of mystery
Just how much it is we can learn from history

One of the most needed lessons of liberty
Is that only limited government prevents tyranny
Civilly but civically, we must turn to reason
Together under rule of law and not allow treason

It's a marvel of the greatest assertion
That beauty of design of our great nation
It's the raised hand of participations first light
That shines like a beacon in the world's dark night

To enlighten others requires great civic virtue
And being civil in all that we say and do
We must politely assert our candid bill of rights
And each of us act as pillars of truth and light

If we want to rebuild the best of our great nation
We'll start with focus and insist on decent education
It does indeed begin with an patient knowing of history
To prevent those of ignorance to lead to tyranny

Our place is firmly, politely in the public square
Presenting our viewpoints clearly when and where
Engaging is needed in debate of our nation's policy
To quash dreaded tyranny and focus on keeping our liberty

Fundamental to our nation is both faith and family
And keeping close to the lessons of our history
We must join together to take our stand
This is more than paramount, I hope you understand
