"O Patriots!"

Once, "Give me liberty, or give me death!" By patriots, with impassioned breath, Filled doubting hearts with duty clear. Now traitors rule the cowards here. There is no "vision" where the weak Submit to bondage.  When they seek With covetous eyes and greedy hands What they've not earned yet still demand. O Patriots, where have you fled? Has freedom died while you have fed On lies and immorality, Forsaken truth and purity? They're craven dogs who will not fight To save their Constitutional rights. This nation, built on moral ground, As quicksand has become unsound. Destruction, famine, and despair, With wails of woe will fill the air Until the wicked are swept off. Old Glory will then wave aloft! To eat one's bread from honest sweat Does law abiding men beget. But freedom's lost lest evil's fought By old and young, O patriots!
