They Or Us

I am outraged!
Aren’t you?
They are out there
Saying lies 
That defy us!

Wait, wait 
Who are they? 
Who is us?
Weren’t we all
Just one?

And these lies 
What are they?
Do they hold
No truth, frustration
Or hidden pain?
Listen I didn’t listen
But I do know.
Their team and tone 
Say enough.
We must retaliate
Or we’ll lose! 

Maybe we can 
Pause and truce.
Mingle together
And learn more.  
We may fare better 
In some middle ground.

You silly 
This is war!
Haven’t you heard?
Choose your side 
Or step aside.
Only one will remain
They or us!
