Train Keeps a Rolling, Right Over a Cliff!

By Mike Stevens

I can see it coming, it’s as plain as day,

Train wreck’s a coming; can’t get out of the way

Passengers of doom, we did this to ourselves

Unbridgeable divides in the ways we think

The two sides rushing away at light speed

Total strangers; can’t find middle ground

Self-inflicted hatred cuts to the bone

Left side or the right side, and nothing in between

Media re-enforcing which ever way you think

What about us, the ones caught in between?

I certainly lean left, but I’m smart enough to see

There’s no way to get everything I wish for

Compromise has become a dirty word
