"Oh, say can you see" the division in our land?
When did we stop listening and start calling names,
How did we become so divided, thinking our neighbor our enemy?
Can't we just listen and not get so angry?
When did violence become a popular solution and
Politicians divided across an invisible aisle?
How did people stop mattering and causes become blind,
Can't we just talk and work on it together?
What will wake one and all to take a hard look?
Our lives in America hold more promise than most.
Acknowledge everyone who bravely shares their opinion,
Can't we look again at our flag and find no division?
