JWG's Grand Hodgepodge —Principles (a poem)

Wherein JWG forever hopes that George Washington's words will be heeded.

107. Principles

Principles
Have no need for clandestine politics
When The Truth is told.

We have had enough
Of the closed-door meetings and discussions
That affect our Liberties.

An ignorant Populace
Is said to be The Constituency.
If that’s so, where’s the Constitution?

George Washington’s words must be recalled:
“I hope ever to see America...
Foremost...in...justice and liberality.”

Have We all abandoned Hope?
Have We obscured the possibility
Of pursuing Happiness?

It is a pity
That Hate has become stronger than Love.
Will We hold the Hand of Peace?

I have Hope
That those who govern will have the good sense
To heed Washington.

Wonderful post. George Washington is a man we should all strive to emulate and teach our children about. Mr. Washington would be dismayed that we no longer have a Biblical approach to life, education, business or politics and I am quite sure that is the reason for the failures and horrors we see today.
