Land of Liberty

In our sweet land of liberty
the individual me
has so many
precious rights that allow one to be,
do, say, and believe...
granted by constitutional decree,
entrusted by each electee
who govern in the name of the collective we,
enforced by the trusted ones of homeland security
and defended by the valiant ones in our military.

So, I ask thee...
Is there another country
that allows one to be
so wonderfully free,
even for those who might disagree?

Well, for me
it will always proudly be
the USA . . . my beloved land of liberty,
for which I pray to God daily
to keep Her glorious, strong, and free.
