A grim, brutal phrase: 
"You're with us or against us!"
It thuds in my brain. 

Refusing to choose
I stagger thru No-Man's Land;
Shot at by both sides. 

Divided nation? 
It's a world too tribal, now.
Neutral? Laughable. 

Happy to stir shit
They'll put us all in boxes,
Breeding division.

No need for lines drawn;
I'm human -- at first at last. 
I'll refuse to hate.



    1. Well said. 🙂 It’s not that we don’t have to have an opinion, but it’s the dogmatic “I’m right, you’re not” that will alienate so many, sadly.
      I’m glad you agree. 🙂

      1. Of course, everybody has an opinion. Even when someone says “I have no opinion”, that in itself is an opinion. But an opinion, is just that, an opinion. It isn’t FACT. It’s how a person feels about something, a view, an interpretation, but opinion, is not fact. Somewhere people lost sight of that.
