Until recently, the only parts of the Declaration of Independence I had read were the, 'When in the course of human events...' part and the, 'We hold these truths to be self evident..' part.

But there is so much more to this historical document I knew nothing of! I particularly like the edgy limerick about England's King George, written (they say) by Button Gwinnett:

There once was a monarch name George,
Whose ego could fill up a gorge.
Till some angry young Yanks
Told Georgie 'No thanks',
And they booted him off of the porch.
