Good Measure

America the Broken

Split in two by the departure of truth

How can truth die

How can truth lie


By the drip, drip, drip

Of continuous slip

From the faucet of hate

And the lack of debate


How can we fail

Why do we flail


With the lack of concern

Of what we all learn

From our partisan news

Heart’s stone it hews


What is the cure

To return to what is pure


When truth takes it’s place

With the return of grace

Crack the stone inside

Let simple truth abide


Can we get back

To the future we lack


Only time will tell

If freedom’s bell

Will ring again

We the people can win


And heal the land with return of truth
