Our Nation is divided
For so far it is blighted
With our differences so stark
Pure motives are too dark
We fail to reach consensus
As politics have lost their senses
News media have chosen sides
Contributing to a farther divide
Fake news created every day
Facts no longer the only way
Alternate news has created a strong base
Many without a moral compass or space
How can they not know what is true
Have we all got dumber with the news?
Some want to hear news they agree with
They claim that they don’t believe in any wordsmith
The pandemic has made it worse
Combined and brought together under this curse
The past two years have been bad
Seeing our World has become sad
Our Country has been tried
As Some Politicians have lied.
Our Country is our strong hope
We are riding a slippery slope
Amanda Gorman spoke in rhyme
As she read the Hill We Must Climb
She spoke of obstacles and slopes
Most importantly of our many hopes.
We must come together now
Or lose ourselves forever shall
If Americans don’t participate
Anger and ruin will prevail in hate
We as a country must go through tribulation
As we come together as a Nation.
We shall rise like a phoenix
As we reach our zenith
The words that surprise
Our Nation shall rise.
