Getting in on the Act

The news gets worse, the world protests
The signing Duck evokes arrests
Panic at airports on home soil
As chaos causes blood to boil.

But hey! A promise has been kept
Another freedom neatly schlepped
Carte Blanche as the House is White?
Uneasiness – all is not right.

Action leads to apprehension
An avalanche of media tension
Other news takes a back seat
The Seven Nations all compete …

Will others join these chosen few?
Embassies wonder what to do;
What flowed from Founding Fathers’ pen?
That created equal are all men ...
