The United States of Pinocchio

Posted by Ana Castillo on Monday, November 14, 2011 Under: Blog
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure Domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the Blessing of Liberty to ourselves and our prosperity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United states of America.  

This is what the Preamble for our constitution says
We are now in the 21st Century, in a more diverse society.
Our constitution remains the same.
As time progresses we've had more wars, protests and changes.
But our constitution remains the same.
The constitution is the law of the land.
It's what sets the standards to maintain equal rights amongst all.
Our middle class is much larger than our upper class.
Our middle class bills exist.
Our upper class bills doesn't. 
This is a sign of inequality.
Our constitution remains the same. 

Why should we be trying to achieve a perfect union?
When Justice is made through money
Domestic Tranquility is not fully explained
And the common defense means killing the innocent.
Our constitution remains the same.
The lies about freedom still exist.
The people of America are still ignorant.
Our constitution is yet to change.

We've had our first black president.
A person in association to the common man.
Yet our constitution remains the same.
His mouth is covered from speaking Justice.
His plans are prevented from expanding rights.
His whole is preventing from bringing our constitution to fit what we have today.
And still, Our constitution Remains the same.
