Spurned For The USA
written by: MR.QUIPTY
Who had Jefferson by the balls
when of liberty he first did scrawl?
Was it Adam's and colonies south
Or were they tight in Sally's mouth?
Perhaps not when declared clear
to 'He' piss mad Georgie dear.
Words redolent: time of revolution
Long wars and Royal dissolution.
Tom's wording so politically made
to wed colonies the cost: slavery
In an unhappy bed.
On that Fourth of July
bright fireworks break the sky.
Thirteen sparks bang, ignite
as one against dusk's blue.
Tom makes nation,
Sally wept for you.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
Sally Jefferson black lover. Proven.
First draft of declaration penned mostly by TJ is more florid and includes clause on abolishing slavery that is absent in the final version.
George iii would not have demanded levy on the colonies if he had not emptied his coffers in the European wars.
I have poetry and stories in "Not Enough To Quit" by Modern Writers published by ATLA Publishing, and a children's poem in "Un-Turn This Stone: short stories for children" by Aviva Treger et al.
