Beware the Ides of March

“Beware the Ides of March,”
For there is word of hope and change.
Beware the big man under the domed arch
For he spouts words that are very strange.

“Breaking his oath and resolution, like a twist of rotten silk,”
Blaming others for his inadequacies and blunders.
A free country is his plan is to bilk
Until freedom finally falls and flounders.

“Every citizen should be a soldier,” once quoted a wise man.
For “When the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
Which should be the country’s elected plan.
But, “When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

“Beware the Ides of March” is upon us
Lest we forget Julius Caesar in Roman times.
For our freedom is not a game of chess
Where the king commits the ultimate crimes.

"The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.” -Thomas Jefferson

"Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." -John F. Kennedy
