"A VISITOR FROM THE PAST" BY THELEN PAULK

A Visitor From The Past

by Thelen Paulk

http://www.geoffmetcalf.com/425.html

I had a dream the other night I didn't understand.

A figure walking through the mist with a flintlock in his hand.

His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed. He took off his three cornered hat and speaking low, he said:

"We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty. We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny. For future generations, this legacy we gave, in this, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun. Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one. On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent. Although you have no voice in choosing, how the money's spent." "Your children must attend a school that doesn't educate.

Your Christian values can't be taught, according to the state.

You read about the current news in a regulated press.

You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the foreign I.R.S. Your money is no longer made of silver, or of gold. You trade your wealth for paper, so your lives can be controlled."

"You pay for crimes that make our Nation turn from God in shame. You've taken Satan's number, as you've traded in your name.

You've given government control, to those who do you harm." "So they can padlock churches, and steal the family farm. And keep our country deep in debt, put men of God in jail. Harass your fellow countrymen, while corrupted courts prevail.

Your public servants don't uphold the solemn oath they've sworn. They defy and rape the nation, and leave it's fabric tattered and torn."

"Your leaders ship artillery and guns to foreign shores. And send your sons to slaughter, fighting other people's wars.

Can you regain the freedom for which we fought and died?" "Or don't you have the courage, or the faith to stand with pride?

Are there no more values for which you'll fight to save? Or do you wish your children to live in fear as a slave?"

"People of the Republic arise and take a stand! Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land!

Preserve our Great Republic, and God Given Right!

And pray to God, to keep the torch of Freedom burning bright!"

As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from whence he came.

His words were true, we are not Free, we have ourselves to blame.

For even now as tyrants trample each God Given Right, we only watch and tremble, too afraid to stand and fight.

If he stood by your bedside, in a dream, while you're asleep, and wonders what remains of our Rights he fought so hard to keep, What would be your answer, if he called out from the grave;

IS THIS STILL THE LAND OF THE FREE AND HOME OF THE BRAVE?

The answer to final question is-No, Now it's Land of the fee and home of the slave.

Moving words and hopefully we'll see a total awakening soon.

I guess I don't know who wrote it then all the web sites I found with this poem on it cite Thelen Paulk ( a Viet Nam Veteran) as the author. Either way it is an awesome and sadly true statement on our current state. Thanks and God Bless for sharing this.

I thought that this one is titled, The Ghost from VAlley Forge, and was wrotten by a Christian Minister. I am scheduled to read it aloud at the next scheduled Tea Party in Colorado Springs (end of June).
