How will Progressives unite
when we are more concerned
with being right
than doing right?

Can we unite
under a common banner?

Or will we continue argument,
in linguistic banter,
over who to blame
for so many things
like war,
and wage,
and poverty?

What a privileged position
it must be
to be able to argue
while the poor go to bed
without shelter.

As we approach closer to winter,
I wonder,
What we Progressives will be
in two years time.

Can the homeless wait that long
as you struggle to spare your dime?

Congress can wait,
