Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln

America’s for freedom
Yet many were not free
In our land – an evil –
It’s name was slavery

The south wanted more money
And so committed sin
They said a person could be owned
If they had darker skin!!!

But Abraham Lincoln
He said, “Stop it! No more!”
Good Abe, he knew, we are born free –
Yet slave owners yelled, “war!!!”

And so began across the land
The U.S. Civil War
Many died while mommas cried
The guns and cannons roared!

But in the end
Though Abe was dead
Murdered!!! A tragedy!!!
His strength, vision,
Saved our nation
Abe ended slavery!!!
