Assembly of Liberty

Assembly of Liberty
by Roger W Hancock

Steel barrel, hammer forged,
blacksmith’s craft of strength.
Grit grinds smoothing mettle,
colonial, courage and gall.

Sight for trigger, future vision,
each lone part, a piece of whole.
Assembling binds together,
colonial consensus builds.

Stock of wood, shoulder set,
carved, smoothed by hand.
Major players set the standard,
colonial citizens gather.

Lead, constitutions, declarations,
forms each lethal globe.
Small dose of powdered strength,
colonial brews a powder keg.

Strike of Flint, sparks last straw,
ignites fires of a grand design.
Musket delivers to its mark,
colonial fortitude, our liberty.
