    ABRAHAM LINCOLN

    President #16 so reverent and clean it stood out as beauty
    Dramatic and brief were his democratic belief naked like nudity
    Which truly persuade many made plenty become duly
    Swan that ABRAHAM LINCOLN was great man
    Out with bureaucracy he was about democracy in the land
    Today his speeches and writings still teaches us exciting
    Things about the covenant of the government igniting
    Policy with quality showed a nobility of character in this
    Silly America who believed blacks were inferior on the list
    And that Whack whites were superior and bliss
    Came to conduct a corrupt system of slavery that required
    No wisdom or bravery had to stop this inhumane act that fired
    Political pressures at LINCOLN he used critical measures in
    Civil War to shatter Slave owners and cave donor of this blend
    Must defend the US and caress freedom lions could be killed
    With LINCOLN’S iron will for in the GETTYSBURG addressed
    Put sweaty stress on the south he expressed conviction with finesse
    Arrest put on restriction those who refused to abolish slavery it
    Polish bravery like Windex on glass a very complex task legit
    If the North had lost we’ll have a false country separated one side
    Integrated the other segregated the blacks caught up in the struggle
    We also fought to juggle freedom we would still be cuddle
    Up on plantations it wasn’t for the Emancipation of Proclamation
    ABRHAM LINCOLN WAS A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT

    republican means something different now

    freeing the slaves was a business decision not humanitarian

    This flow is mad tyght
    I personally have some reservations about Lincolns greatness in considering that out of his own mouth he declared that the civil war was “to solidify the Union and not to free the slaves” he even instructed some of his generals who had freed slaves in specific regions to return them. But there is other significant indication that he was truly a humanitarian who valued the freedom of the Negro slave. For me the jury is still out. But your flow was still mad tyght.
    Keep scribing poet, loved the flow

    in my (white) highschool history class, i got the impression that Lincoln did this because the leader in Russia or one of those countries over there had done away with indentured servants over there, so basically he was copying. whatever the case, he did have balls to end slavery and stick to his guns, even with the country breaking into civil war. thanks for making my brain work.
