The Root Cause

Written by: Joe Flach

Fear is running rampant throughout our great nation
Some fearing guns; some that they’ll be taken
The battle line is being drawn quite bold and quite wide
With propaganda being spread full of lies from both sides

Such contempt and mistrust has infested this society
Contributing to the root cause of the problem I see
Children witness venom and hatred in the stances we take
Making matters even worse – of that you should make no mistake

We have lost the ability to compromise for sake of the greater good
Shake some sense into both sides – I only wish that I could
Meanwhile nothing is being done for the situation to improve
Instead the adversarial sides are being stubbornly rude

For the sake of the victims is there nothing we can do
To get both sides together and from this problem pull through?
