Fragile Thing


Oh, how fragile

A house of glass

From sea to shining sea


Intricate web

That binds our land

Humble democracy


Paid for in blood

From sacred sons

Even harder to keep


Two centuries

A hallowed past

Democracy runs deep


Forefathers best

To build upon

Sheltered from tyranny


But, oh this child

This fragile thing

Blessed democracy

    It’s an insult to those who served if we don’t protect it for those who gave their lives fighting for it.
