Division Unites Us

Sometimes people forget

We are on the same side,

We fight each other

Instead of the enemy.


A country full of hypocrites,

We denounce our neighbors, yet

We are quick to point out another’s



We’ve all traded in political diversity for

Debt and extremity.


Acceptance is a priority on paper, yet

Conservative minds are excluded

And liberals are typecast.


All races, African-Americans, Asian-Americans

Caucasians, Hispanic-Americans

Discriminate against the other,

As well as members of their own

Division is the one thing that unites us.

My country
