816 : 7/4/00 : Independence Tip

Fit that quill pen with an Independence Tip
Be careful with the balances and how many checks you skip
Nothing written down can make a well ordered state
No brand of governance can work that fails to relate
How fine are you gonna have to write
to fit it on a thousand pages
I’ve got only five to the fifths
and the thing has took me ages
nevertheless my dear friend
All that starts is bound to end
nine hundred a thousand a thousand one
look this story has just begun
soon no more an apprentice
on this declaration’s trip
I’ve got my fountain pen fitted
with my independence tip
