United We Stand

 

Do you remember what they used to say,

not so very long ago was that day

when working together was seen as good,

representing both sides as government should.

 

But then came the blinkers, the deaf ears,

along with extreme views, stoking up fears.

What happened to ‘united’, it’s been compromised

and I wish I could say that I’m really surprised.

 

No ‘give and take’, for you know what’s best,

pursue your ideas and blank all the rest.

Don’t listen to reason, refuse to debate

for not getting your way, well, that’s something you hate.

 

A lesson worth learning is the effect of division,

that sets a country on a course of collision;

perhaps you should remember that rousing call;

United we stand and divided we fall.’
