Elect is not from Electronic

Elect is not from Electronic
by jamh

I read the constitution
from end to end,
not as a lawyer
or looking to find
for my own belief,
but for its simplicity
of passionate words
that strike a chord
and move you to action
instead of just
live by.

In this age of parody,
where performance
outshines substance
and words are twisted
out of their beauty,
when you torture
for your security,
when you lie
to start looting,
when you kill
for plain old money,
what words could you choose
to appeal to morality?

Just as ideals
propel nations
into existence
their opposite,
the black but shiny vacuum
that corruption creates
will surely suck them back
into history.

I invite you to enjoy
for the last time perhaps
words truly written by
we the people.

I gather the ad didn't live up to expectation?  If I knew you in your glorious youth, I would have said, with a hat, that you looked just like a cowboy.
