Requital

A traitor to his country, Aaron Burr,
Before him it was Arnold standing there,
No man for cause his honor will defer.

Potential was the word sought to confer
By friends before his fates would dare declare
A traitor to his country, Aaron Burr.    
           
When Hamilton to Burr conveyed a slur,   
Its end, the pair their souls for death prepare,        
No man for cause his honor will defer.

Our third Vice president would later stir
The charge of treason Marshall called unfair,
A traitor to his country, Aaron Burr.

Yet, down the river he his troops did spur
To gain the fort He'd call his pirate's lair,
No man for cause his honor will defer.

At seventy a villain's bones incur
No sympathetic cry, his record bare,
A traitor to his country, Aaron Burr,
No man for cause his honor will defer.
