Our Country has always been divided
And, you might ask, “When did we ever get along?”
From USA’s early existence
Through its Revolutionary past
And, now with the most recent Jan 6 insurrection
Reasons might have been different
But none the less,
There were always things to be unhappy about.
Even without phones, TV or computers.
People just didn’t always get along,
With their governments,
Or even their families.
Many came to America for this very reason,
And, things just didn’t improve as the country expanded.
Its a wonder how we ever got together to fight a war,
Against the British Empire.
Articles of Confederation took years to sign
And, even after it was, there were problems.
Violence was often a part of the American experience
No surprise there, actually.
Now, we have Twitter; Facebook to divide us
With others just trying to stir things up
Guess nothing ever changes,
And. perhaps nothing ever will.
And, it might be best to figure out a way through it
Without driving you nuts.
