Ronald Reagan!

Ronald Reagan! I'm with you in America
where you're more alive than I am

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where you must feel transfigured

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where you announce again a new morning

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where you've strangled the last progressive
with the entrails of the last liberal

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where you laugh at Harry Reid’s senate

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where we are great citizens of the same Resurrected Republic

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where your sudden appearance above the Interstate
is reported with fear or joy on every web site of the Internet

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where the Constitution is read aloud and squashes
the worms in the White House

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where we drink the fine summer wine of Liberty

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where you midwife a new birth of freedom

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where your mere name makes progressives scream
in straightjackets and fill up their drool cups

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where you announce the American soul is immortal
and has never yet melted

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where the traitors in the Congress are consumed
in a refining fire

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where the LORD will not suffer
the souls of the righteous to famish

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where you will split the heavens above Washington
and resurrect the living human Jesus from the
secular tomb

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where there are three hundred million sane citizens
all together singing the final stanza
of The Battle Hymn of the Republic

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where we embrace the United States under
our flag, the stars of the United States that shine all
night and won't let us sleep in our dream

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
where we wake up luminous and transformed from the coma
of socialism, our states’ stars beautiful
in spacious skies above our fruited plains,
as diamond-armored angelic guardians of the last best hope of Earth
O liberated legions run outside O starry
spangled shock of freedom the eternal war is
won O victory where the memory of the just is blessed:
but the name of the wicked shall rot

Ronald Reagan, I'm with you in America
in my visions you stride back from a seachange
on the highway across America glowing luminous
our founders’ vision confirmed by God’s holy angels
to the door of my bungalow in the Northwestern night


This concludes the epic poem of GROWL!. The previous two sections are:

GROWL! PART I

DEMOCRAT! PART II OF GROWL!
