(excerpt from It Can Be Done: Poems for Hardship, Sacrifice, and Dominion)

"We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately," Benjamin Franklin is reported to have said at the signing of the Declaration of Independence.


It ain't the guns nor armament, 
Nor funds that they can pay,
But the close co-operation,
That makes them win the day.

It ain't the individual,
Nor the army as a whole,
But the everlasting team-work
Of every bloomin' soul.

J. Mason Knox
