With a lack of courage we acquiesce

The culture war has taken casualties

The polarization begets the tribal identity

When adults emerge as adolescents

They adopt the bully proclivity

Educated people

No longer freely think

Standing on the partisan line

Espousing talking points written in the party ink

Much like a cult

This tribe shuts down the mind

That questions any divergent motives

Of any differing kind

Analogous to an invasion

The body snatchers improvise

With mob rule pravado

Those against them they disenfranchise

The child on the playground is bullied

The adult in the world also confess

Not much changes

With a lack of courage we acquiesce

Only logic, reason and ethics

Can combat the folly at play

Debate must be encouraged

If we intend to square this away
