This Poems Story

This poem came to be from an assignment in my creative writing class. It was to write a transformation story in 75 words or less and this is what I produced; The Transformation of the Framers. It's a homage to the legacy of the revolutionaries that founded the United States, seen through the eyes of a farmer boy that joined the militiamen during the battles of Lexington and Concord.
