Morning spin

Every morning we arise
Lets spin the wheel
Of another's demise.

It's the most popular
Pastime
In the world today;
Spinning the wheel of hate; yay.

You hate Hillary, I'll hate Trump.
Every member of congress we'll dump.

Let's hate the ref, the other team,
They must be blind we'll rant and scream.

If you're different from me
in any way,
You don't deserve the time of day.

We love to hate and hate to love.
We turn our backs on the Lord above.

With all our righteous indignation,
We put ourselves above all creation

There is no place for civil discourse.
Make up history, ignore the facts,
Perpetuate lies with violent acts.

A divided house will surely fall,
Whether on not we build a wall.

So if you'd like to reunite,
Put hate's wheel away tonight.
Arise tomorrow with love in your heart,
Good change will come when we start.

Seeing each other as human not race,
to feel another's pain is no disgrace.

In the morn, if you should awake,
Spin the wheel of love...
Take my hand and meet our fate.
