It’s All the Same

Yes or no; right or wrong.
In or out; short or long–
Whether in print, or online,
Or spoken aloud, or in my mind–

It’s all the same, only different in name.

You’re with them or against us,
You’re a liar or you did what you must.
We have two teams–for everything–
Everything! A side to pick; an anthem to sing.

It’s all the same, different only in name.

Choose where you stand and plant your flag,
Keep your heart strong, don’t let your head drag.
An opinion is yours, it cannot be changed
Admitting defeat is the worst kind of rage.

It’s all the same, different only in name.

So many ways to divide ourselves,
Ways to sort, and to order and to shelve–
And now the lines we’ve made we cannot sway:
I just wish I’d find a shade of gray.
