divided we stand

at this time of great unrest

our nation stands


in a civil war of prose

snowflakes and nazis

aliens and terrorists


little do our people know

pride comes before the fall

that muslim you deem terrorist

is your neighbor after all


pedro at the grocery store

is a legal citizen, therefore

please refrain from calling him

an illegal alien, furthermore


the ones you mock

who have views that don't match yours

guess who are citizens too?

and not really foreigners


and even if they were, who cares?

as long as they work hard

the american dream belongs to all

so hold all in kind regard

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
