...We in it Shall be Remembered-

With all due respect and credit to William Shakespeare and King Henry the V

What’s more to be wished for?
My brothers and sisters from
No, my fair friends and neighbors;
If we are marked to fail, we are enough
Our freedom, our earnings, our children’s future, will be lost; but if we win,
The fewer, the greater share each of honor.
God knows, I am not covetous of a State Film Subsidy,
Nor care I who doth drink upon 20 oz cups;
It burns me not if men wear droopy drawers;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
But if it be a sin to covet
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, have faith, my family, wish not another from
New England.
God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honor
As one more methinks would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Worcester, through this host,
That they which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his E-ZPass shall be paid,
And Crash Murray will convey him home;
We would not share in that one’s company
That fears fellowship with us.
Saturday April 13th will be the Great Tea Party Rally.
He that Rallies this day, on Boston Common for
Will stand a proudly when this day is recalled,
And rouse him at the name of the Tea Party Rally.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the anniversary, with his neighbors,
And say “To-morrow is the Tea Party Rally.”
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say “These sunburns I got at the great Tea Party Rally.”
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall the names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Grover Norquist, Tom Duggan and Dr. Keith Ablow,
Jeff Katz and Paul Craney, Jessica Vaughan and Jake Danishevsky,
Nathan Fatal and Andrea Taber, and Andres “DraMatik” Gonzales,
Jim Wallace and Todd Feinburg, Aaron Goldstein and Jeff Kuhner,
Be in their flowing Big Gulp Cups freshly remembered.
This story shall the patriots teach their sons;
And the Tea Party Rally shall never go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For they today that stands for Liberty with me
Shall be my brother, my sister; be they once a liberal,
This day shall redeem their condition;
And Prince Deval in Milton
Shall think himself accursed because we were here,
And held on to our wages and our rights
We stood for Liberty upon the Boston Common Tea Party Rally.
