The Founding Fathers

by Marshall - age 13

(20-line poem for final poetry assignment)


Believe it or not

America once was not a tight knot.

Old king George once was kind,

Until he went all out of his mind.

He taxed the people,

He passed unfair laws.

He did it all without a cause.

Then a small group —

(Not more than a troop,

Only three percent)

Yet they didn’t resent,

Came out of the worry

Came out of the shade

To do what was right —

They were not afraid.

Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, Adams one, Adams two,

Wanted something new-


What an inspiration,

For God saved the nation.
