Donkey or elephant?
Rich, middle class, or poor?
Red or blue?
They have us all confused, all duped.
It’s a game of sides, an endless pursuit.
So we begin to hate, one another,
Begin to rate, one another,
Like our worth depends on contempt,
Not resisting the tempt.
But brothers and sisters,
Isn’t this one nation?
Lost our patience,
All things decided by rich white misters.
Because we argue over things that take forever to be voted in,
And ignore the world’s greatest sins.
Because while we argue for feats,
People starve on the streets.
I’m acting my own self, that paper out of range,
Because I can show my fellow human love before my ballot makes a change.
A poem about loving our fellow human, not politics.
