It seems to me something is fundamentally wrong

with our politics, when did it become that civility was gone,

 

or compromise, which is the very foundation

of a true democracy? I see a setting, not a rising sun.

 

Life and death reduced to the Super Bowl,

a winner-take-all sporting event, with annihilation the goal.

 

The Red team vs. the Blue team, each trying to crush the other.

A ship of derision, of hatred, is steered by this rudder.

 

It's now completely divided, 'we win, you lose!'

Polarized on a massive scale, the path we choose

 

is one of the most resistance, of all or nothing,

if we don't get it all, you're not going to get shit!
