No better angels

After Hebrews 11:1-3 and Psalm 2

Life liberty pursuit of happiness
(or, better, achievement of happiness)
we the people of the people
for the people by the people
vote vote vote
give give give
lobby lobby lobby
(snark) (snark)
nation plots nation rages
leaders chase without leading
followers forget to follow
we plot we rage we take our stand
I know me and me sets me free
unlocks the chains
happiness at my fingertips
within my grasp
mine mine me my eyes
my demands my feelings
a house without foundation
cannot stand will not stand
our natures have no better angels
