A More Perfect Union

“….In order to form a more perfect union…”

That’s the goal.  That’s the “why”.  The rest of it is just details.

We fight wars….mostly with foreign combatants, sometimes with ourselves.

We protest our country, we celebrate our country, we riot, we police.

We debate, we pray, we admire, we detest.

We investigate, we report, we conclude, we spin.

We sing, we kneel, we salute, we sit.

We work, we vacation, we compete, we share.

We propose, we negotiate, we compromise, we pass.

We ridicule, we vilify, we learn, we forgive.

The Argument For Moral Failings

We eat, we drink, we talk, we laugh.

We post, we like, we ignore, we get outraged.

We sleep, we dream, we envision, we worry.

And then, as our eyes open once again at the dawn of another day we find ourselves the lucky recipients of the greatest nation in the history of the world….still flawed as acknowledged at its birth.

And so the work begins again…”in order to form a more perfect union”.

Sing it for me, Ray….
