We are ALL one people, stand up against hate

Make America Great Again! Huh?

by okanaganbell

"Let's Make America Great Again!" *Sigh*
Great catchphrase! But...It's a ruse!...It's a lie!
Let's put our cards on the table! Shall we?
(Your Brothers and Sisters will probably, die!)
Those words are the shallows of a deeper intent
Meant to allure with; A 'Come hither' scent
Confusing the people, hardening their heart
To see only the surface...Pull them apart
Skin color...Religion, aren't one
Being gay or straight doesn't define you
The Politicians in this world mostly agree, but
There are always bad apples picked carelessly
All leaders in their own right, seek out applause...
WE SEE you, Mr. President! Promoting...
Seeking 'a-clause'

Dear Sir:
Sacrifice. Bloodshed. Blame. "For The Greater Good!"
Power Hungry Narcissism! Completely understood!
You sit back, defiant...Split all the hairs
Implant the hatred!
Poke all the bears!
Antagonize everyone, so they fight on their street
Good job Mr. President!
Misleading the Sheep
Distraction-Retraction...Hail to the Chief!
Reaction-Infraction...Jail to the Thief!
Minions placate your ego.
Kiss your ass-piring swill
Turn neighbors on neighbors in "Charlottesville"
"Violence in Virginia", exposed your "many sides"
"March for Truth!" @Hashtag: TheRussianRides
Lack of compassion, 'Not' a leadership quality
Creating disharmony and resentment is Not
A "Great Country" policy
Leaders that run amok and aren't held accountable
Reinforces in the people, be discountable
So...Mr. President of the USA...To "Make America Great" today
Take lessons from the people. Hear ALL the cries
Learn from our past...The results from lies
Talk truths, decide for all. To stand proud, as ONE
Own your real skill; Divide and conquer
Your web's been spun...

Dear People:
Skin color doesn't matter, and
Beliefs aren't law
Loving who you love isn't a flaw
To be who you are IS YOUR human right
Just being alive, is not a reason to fight
Hatred's NOT an option when love is pure
Sexism is hypocrisy! Standing together can cure
War is unnecessary, let comradery begin
For...Equality's reality
Shows stability within!
No matter the race, the color, the words
WE are ALL human beings!
Same sheep...Different herds
We all have the right to stand proud, say NO...
To Violence, Racism, Bigotry, and War!
Just let the leaders, alone...Fight 'their' enemy
The winner gets a trophy, the glory, the anomie
All on their own without us, used as bait
Helping their cause...Envy and hate
Leave us to OUR land. It's NOT just YOURS
Freedom and choices, from Truth...
Opens doors
