Civil War, Part II

I pledge allegiance

To the left

Stand for the oppressed

Bleed blue from my chest.

 

I pledge allegiance 

to the right

Disguised as hate

But for freedom I fight.

 

What happened to one nation

Indivisible?

 

Let's pledge allegiance

To the flag

'Cause you can't have blue stars

Without the red stripes.

 

You're sorely mistaken

If you can't see the war

Right under our noses

Right on our front door.

 

Let's unify

The left and the right.

After all,

It's of the United States

I write.
