‘Madison’s Introduction’

Do You Know What Went Down During the Ratification Process?

A sample from Book 3

 Madison's Introduction
 
distinguishing himself
from the boys
preparing the bill of rights
developing legislative departments
strengthen his voice
 
in 1794
a pretty widow with
much charm
dolly payne todd did take his arm
 
as secretary of state-
nothing to carve
a federalist as president
he left in a horse driven car
 
retiring to montpelier to farm
it wouldn't be long
federalists' threat on freedom
brought alarm
the virginia resolutions-
denouncing the alien and sedition acts
was strong
 
returning to state legislature
out of the barn
the light for civil liberties
was his storm
 
campaigning for jefferson
was his choice
secretary of state once again
he did hoist
inseparable for eight years
making their own noise
 
foreign policy was their norm
keeping america neutral in
europe's selfish war
 
the louisiana purchase was truly
an american form
 
madison was jefferson's star
succeed his presidency
wouldn't be hard
in 1808...an 122-47 vote
madison won by far
 

Smart! That was James Madison, America’s fourth President. From the Madison Papers to the Bill of Rights…Madison never stopped. Of course, Alexander had to put his nose in all his business. But that never deterred him. [‘Madison’s Introduction’ was written in 2009.]
