The world is divided

 

The world is divided

I have decided.

 

I have decided

that the world is divided between the strong and the weak,

between the rich  and the poor,

between those who Ďhave notí

and those who have more than enough.

 

Divided by minorities and majorities,

of whites and of blacks,

we seem to be shuffled like cards

to a segregated pack.

 

Separating me and you

with divisions galore,

but always divided

between the rich and the poor.

 

The world is divided I have decided

and itís in a whole lot of strife.

The world is divided

with a whole lot of hype.
