 My dad says balance is carrying the same weight,

And that our government shares that fate.


Just like a teacher who checks my work

Three equal branches are on alert.


If one branch tries to abuse its power

The other two branches will not cower.


These protections were written down in law

On the prettiest document you ever saw.


The U.S. Constitution is a beautiful thing

The very best law, and what we need.


It’s yours, it’s mine and has stood the test

Our Founders knew it would be the best.


Balance of power, in branches three

Make America the very best place to be!
