Differences Among Americans


Apples and oranges whip cream and chocolate
Armani and Wrangler Penthouses and slums
Country and Rock Hip Hop and Classic
Differences help make America fantastic

Old and young feeble and strong
Positive and Negative right and wrong
Rich and Poor Workers and Users
Differences creates winner and losers

Choice and mandatory Voices and Still
Screaming and mumbling Empty and fill
Struggling and successful birth and dying
Differences help keep us laughing and trying

Attack and retreats Blizzards and sunshine
High country peaks deep canyon ravine
Industrial reveolutions return to the green
We have more differences than can be seen

We are different, but we are Americans
Politically opposed racially melted
Behind our military opposed to our generals
But our differences weaves the theme that is America
