Wide, but too wide?

The span is now too wide to cross
The rift too deep and raging to fathom
 
How sad for America and her sons
Democracy dies in partisan darkness,
 
With harsh words of a madman and silence
From it's caretakers, who no longer care
 
Empty space where the eagle used to fly,
Once majestic, now cowering in disbelief
 
Beyond words to have ever come to this,
Here, in our nation, in 2020, not 1652
 
but there is hope on the horizon
Hear the cavalry's bugle

General Custard had the sound of bugles at the Battle of Little Big Horn. I'm just jaded when it comes to politics. Democrats, Republicans. Cut from the same cloth. Pelosi, McConnel. The only difference is that ones a woman, the other a man. After that, same shii, different day.

Thanks, 88, while you raise a valid point, that they're all the same, I disagree with you, to me, Pelosi plays politics to get what she feels is right, and McConnell plays politics to screw up the democratic agenda, which a majority of the American people want
