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 ...
