What behooves us
Often will not move us
Into action or protest.

When one side worships
A book of myth as truth
While the other side worships
A cult of personality as truth.
We ponder; “Who’s wrong and why?”
Two sides of the same coin
Flipped by fate but forgotten by time.

Some pick no sides
Expounding the truth of that time;
“Left is just as bad as right
 If the driver is confused”.

When balance is lost
The weight becomes too heavy
For justice to hold.

Greed kills compassion
Apathy breeds Contempt
Picking loyalty over peace
Using books as weapons
And identity as war
We call it Home.
