Our nation’s soul is now on trial;
It’s on worldwide display.
Will hate and fear from Trump beguile
Or might love win the day?
“Give me your tired, your poor…” the call
Of Lady Liberty.
Now Trump says he will build a wall.
Forget that history.
Our sentiments right now divide,
Half love, half hate and fear.
Our votes will show our soul inside.
Will our result be clear?
Will we see hatred segregate
Behind a wall of red?
How odd, where “Christians” congregate—
Christ’s love? No, hate instead.
This cycle we’ve seen murdered Jews.
And there was an attempt
To bomb all those with leftist views
For whom Trump holds contempt.
Trump energized his bigot base
To view brown folks like lice.
For lacking empathy and grace,
He’s yet to pay a price.
The evidence is crystal clear;
Our trial is underway.
Will we choose love or hate and fear
On this election day?
