America’s foundation, connecting rod~ by rl dubour


America‘s foundation, connecting rod.

From Delaware to 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.

Seventeen-hundred-and-seventy-six
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.

Virginia one 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.
