We've lost--the ability to be sympathetic

We've lost--the ability to think poetic

 

We've lost--the ability to see the positive

We've lost, the ability to be cooperative

 

We've lost--the essence of what made us

stand out,

that made our country something to be

envied, now doubt,

 

fear, mistrust, and yes, hate, have

replaced our soul,

and corrosive ideology has taken its toll

 

We've lost--the thing that made us

human,

suddenly, it's the dark ages again
