In the poem “Declaration”, the author essentially displays the Constitution, and the fact that despite what is written in there, there are still plenty of people that feel like they don’t have their freedom, despite them residing in the “land of the free”. The constant use of the “He” pronoun may probably mean the king of Britain, which would mean the poem is talking about the way the King treats them – still considering them residents of their homeland, and controlling them as if they still can’t escape from the King’s rule. When looking at the poem again with this context, we can see many points that connect them together. The first couple lines “He has sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people” could refer to the King’s guards taking up residence in citizens’ homes as if it’s their own. In the last few lines, “Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury” could signify the buildup that eventually leads to what we know as the American Revolution.
