The New Norm?

Americans wonder what is the new norm
As the American spirit for greatness seems to be reborn
Even as from the Swamp and Congress gridlock is the prevailing norm
Fueled by a loss of civility and compromise we all should mourn
Each side wishing for another victory at all cost ribbon to one’s chest adorn
Anyone who disagrees in the PC culture is ruthlessly scorned
We once were two nations one black one white still two but now into left and right torn
Any effort to have rational and civil discussion quickly becomes stillborn
Speak out against the PC police and the left quickly the race card warns
No wonder the art of compromise lies on a bed of thorns
Total depressed, rejected in pain hurt and forlorn
The only notes we hear is either charge or taps played from the partisan horns
The only way to win an argument is not with the best idea but with the biggest bullhorn
