Concern for future ~ 3rd place contest winner

A chapter in the book More Opinions & Politics 2013~2017

'More Opinions, Politics & Comments' ~ #57-401-B-C

I'm concerned how to save our nation,
being shaken to its foundation,
as hysteria grows from within.

Those who don't get their way burn the town,
those who don't like what's said shut speech down,
and lawlessness explodes from within.

It would be best to all get along,
but I'm weary of singing that song,
while our country implodes from within.

It has been said before that nations self-destruct from within. No other country has to do it to us, we are doing a great job of it ourselves with lawlessness, intolerance, rioting and violence. Do we hate each other that much? What can be gained by self-destruction? What legacy do you want to leave your kids and grandkids?
