We are so intent on being right

We refuse to listen

We refuse to hear

The pleas of difference

Clinging, clinging to our idols


We shut out the voices

Dehumanizing those who disagree

Desensitizing our hears to reality

All for a skewed belief


Is this what we have become?

Is this where we’ve landed?

We are better than this

We must stop this madness

We craft response

So carefully cued

To our ideologies


Without heart, without thought

We beat the partisan drums

Forever bowing down to party


We cling without reason

Cleave to certainty

No Question

No Thought

No mercy for others

Whom we consider…. wrong


Humility lacks

Futility rises

You take your side

I’ll take mine

We are broken….

Divided we Fall
