Independent Thinking

I’ve sometimes asked myself, “If I
Were born in the 18th century,
Would I have supported the Revolution,
Not knowing what the future would be?”
The Declaration of Independence
Lists lots of complaints about George III,
But recent presidents get just as many;
I won’t take every accuser’s word.
And even if true, how much would I care
When the focus was mainly on three pence tax?
I know it went further in those days, but still,
Would it get me behind secessionist acts?
The Founding Fathers took a big risk
With a government like we’d never seen.
I tend to be slow to adopt what’s new,
So it’s highly likely I wouldn’t be keen.
That said, I have to remind myself
That it’s silly to guess what my thoughts would be:
Without this era’s knowledge and nurture,
The past so-called “I” would not be me.
