‘Leader to Freedom’

John Adams and the Flag

A sample from Book 3

 Leader to Freedom
 
in july 1776
final colonial debate
independence or the strap
john adams couldn't hold back
 
to argue for freedom
should be a laugh
history books
teach none of that
an immediate act
far from that
 
fear
grips like a trap
congress frozen
they sat
 
john adams
took care of that
 
with a power of thought and expression
that moved us from our seats
 
thomas jefferson
described adams'
little congressional chat
 
a vote finally passed
only new york chose the strap
imagine that
 
to abigial
adams did draft
 
...ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade,
with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires,
and illuminations, from one end of its continent to the other,
from this forward, forevermore....
 
for freedom
adams' new how to react
 
to seal freedom's combat
in congress...1777
john adams presented
the united states' flag
 
thirteen red...white stripes
thirteen white stars sat
on a blue field
a new constellation tap
 
all ready
for freedom's path
 
john adams' ingenuous craft
brought to life
an independent raft

John Adams…our first vice president and our second president. The beginning of a country is a very interesting study. Character meant everything. Oh, there were a few scum-bags. John Adams wasn’t one of them! [‘Leader to Freedom’ was written in 2010.]
