Jefferson Said More Than He Meant

Jefferson said more than he meant.

Inspired words pushing

Boundaries of self-evident truth


Beyond small-mindedness

Eclipsing the glittering prose

“All Men Created Equal”

It was more than he meant.

An idea


Past former lines of demarcation

Imaginations swelling

Over oceans that no longer constrain

A freedom bequeathed and bloodied

And moving forward

An arc of history

Bending toward justice.


Increasingly self-evident

God’s Truth

Marching on.

Yes. Jefferson said more

Than he meant …

Or ever, even imagined.
