How did we get here?

My country men,
How did we get here!

I feel my heart breaking
I see a country divided
No longer united
Our bonds torn asunder

How did we get here!

The right calls the left snowflakes
The left calls the right racists.
On and on they hurl the insults
Each perceiving the Other, stupid

Are we still not brothers?

How did we get here!

We’re told by each government
“We’re here for you!”
They come and they go!

Our fires rage
We’re all still here

How did we get here!

Democrats align with Canadians
Republicans with Russians
Yet our Children still hunger
The vets still struggle

How did we get here !

We’re a Sojourn Nation.
We shook off an empire
Marched out of slavery

But how did we get here?

Sincerely an American
