In a crucible of our democractic right to vote,
Acts by fringe groups tried to take an axe
The principle of the nation: one voice, one vote,
But, thankfully police turned back the attack!
Complacent being complaisant to a despots’s will,
They entered Congress’s halls without warning,
Intent on ravishing people who certify the votes,
They left a country in great sadness and mourning.
The right to vote must be protected and ensured.
Anything less is to betray our nation’s beliefs.
So, we cannot allow anyone to take away the right,
Not even the Congress or the commander in chief.
