No Faction


When the political lords bickers
Do not be deceived or perturbed
There is no real divide between them
They are two sides of a coin
Democrats, Republicans, Aristocrats, monarchs
A little to the left or a little the right
Western or eastern ideologues
They are just the same
Their bickering is farce
Its scene in an act
Outwardly they are foes
Yet are well-knitted
In their skills and resolves
So, you see, their faction is a farce

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
