Let’s Have a Reunion!

A Poem Inspired by The Butter Battle Book by Dr. Seuss

One evening when I’d had enough,
And off my chest just flew this stuff.
I looked my love right in the eye
I said, “let’s give something a try —
Turn off the news, I’ll tell you why
All this division makes me cry.
What if they all are numb to pain?
It won’t be easy to retrain.
Have you set foot across the lane?”
