Changing of the Guard

Feeling that your dominance is obsolete

The angry reasons you give are pretty lame

Changing of many households on your street

Old neighbors move, new ones aren’t the same


You can hideaway in your locked community

And only stream your favorite TV channel

It’s still a country of great opportunity

That some are working to dismantle


The line between us is now a mighty fault

Rumbling and shaking us to the core

Fissures we just pave with more asphalt

While factions dials up the ideological war


Agents of misinformation spread seeds

Religion co-opted and demonized

Liberty weeps while morality bleeds

Hatred is fuel, fear is weaponized


America of today is a solid foundation

Filled in by the mosaic of tomorrow

Reflecting the diversity of creation

And the beauty of humanity’s rainbow
