America’s foundation, connecting rod~ by rl dubour

America‘s foundation, connecting rod by rl dubour 

From Delawareto Hawaii
The first to last by date.
Each one wrote their own Preamble
The difference I’ll relate.

I don’t think it matters much
Just how I do begin.
Whether I start alphabetically
Or the dates they joined in.

An introductory statement
Of a Constitution
Not just one but every state
Words of their inclusion.

Three with proclamations
Maryland and Pennsylvania
Submit their declaration.

Exactly written for both states
Grateful to Almighty God
Our foundation now beginning
This is the connecting rod.

Virginiaone of three that year
“We owe our Creator.”
Forbearance, Love and Charity
No-One else is greater!

A rapid pace our Country grew
Words of faith they did choose
Been down came back as good as new.
In God we trust, cannot lose.

All fifty states they say the same
Thanking Almighty God.
Making our foundation solid.
This is the connecting rod.

God is our Supreme Ruler
The point I’m trying to create.
Stop and think why they all gave
Thanks to God in every state.


  1. That was an excellent beginning, to what is now a secular society. Good job. Can we ever get back there?

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
