pomes of buddy don: Whom Shall We Trust?

Whom Shall We Trust?

Whom shall we trust to protect and preserve
Our way of life and our constitution,
If the executive, sworn to conserve
It, uses its power for retribution?

Will it be congress to balance and check
Assertions of powers never defined
To let the president's statements reject
The clear intent of the law he just signed?

Or will the courts stand up to proclaim
That even the president must obey
The laws of the land and the very same
Ideals that he vowed never to betray?

Or will we trade cheap our sweet liberty
For the false promise of security?

Anyone who bleevs the promis of security is either fat rich or dumber than a brick.
