Wasted

The Left-Right divide among the cities & plains,
a toxic soup of accusatory
stereotyping rife with haughty claims
to intellectual versus moral superiority.
It’s no different from gang wars
between Crips & Bloods
or any other fight for illusory power & gain.
There is no ‘us’ in U.S. – seems to be only ‘them’.
Our potential as a nation is wasted
by us throwing stones of fear
at one another.
Wisdom cries out in the streets –
do we hear?
