Divided

It should never have happened,
Say what you will,

As we wallow in confusion
On the flip side of great,

Blaming the shattered glass
On the pavement,

And the distant
Shuffling shadows.

We sit here divided and broken,
Screaming in the dark,

We snarl through
Disagreement’s spent spittle,

Wounded and angry,
Fighting fire with fire,

Hope burning on the roadside,
Faith lolling out of sight.
