Declaration Dance

Virginia carried the proposition,
That Adams and Adams spouted
But couldn’t drive through,
That all men are entitled a life
Free from the fetters of kings.
Lee launched the Liberty vote.
Jefferson articulated the leap fantastic
Washington carried its balleted banner
Winter cold and cannon fodder.
Lafayette languished in York,
Out maneuvering the British,
And liberty was born to argument
Of how we should go forward
In this courtly Sarabande and lively jig.
