"if any one proposition could command the universal assent of mankind, we might expect it would be this: that the government of the union, though limited in its powers, is supreme within its sphere of action. this would seem to result necessarily from its nature. it is the government of all; its powers are delegated by all; it represents all, and acts for all. though any one state may be willing to control its operations, no state is willing to allow others to control them. the nation, on those subjects on which it can act, must necessarily bind its component parts. although, among the enumerated powers of government, we do not find the word ‘bank’ or ‘incorporation,’ we find the great powers to lay and collect taxes; to borrow money; to regulate commerce; to declare and conduct a war; and to raise and support armies and navies…a government, entrusted with such ample powers…must also be instructed with ample means for their execution.…we are unanimously of opinion, that the law passed by the legislature of maryland, imposing a tax on the bank of the united states, is unconstitutional and void."

well i hope you find it .
i'll write a couple because i don't know what genre you are looking for.
walking through the field,
looking left and right,
sighing and remembering my last meal,
hoping i don't have to get my next by a fight.
thinking back to when times were easy,
missing being able to have a structured meal,
thinking about food though makes me queasy,
right now i don't know how to feel.
stomach is rumbling,
missing the ledge of dirt to step on,
falling and stumbling,
look here, its dinner i've stumbled upon.
running and running,
seeing my goals in front of me,
not being able to reach them fast enough,
or not being able to reach them at all.
wondering if i can ever be enough,
if i can meet society's standards,
will i always be a misfit?
one who will never have a place?
i know that i can make my way,
making my goals or not,
i am content with who i am,
whether people like it or not.
there you go, the first one is a rhyming couplet with abab, and the second is a non-rhyming poem. cheers!
the correct answer is: b. too many irish living in poverty.
in his recognized essay, a modest proposal, swift tackles the terrible social problem that ireland was suffering: poverty and, with it, the heavy prejudice against poor people that social inequality had generated. using a rather unusual approach to shock the audience (suggesting that poor parents should sell their kids in the meat market or even eat them), he engages the subject head-on.
