The right kind of conviction
We don't need any more clues,
just turn on the news.
Get off the couch and put down the Haagen Dazs,
it's time to fight for a cause.
The politics of fear is right now, right here,
but let's emphasize the brave in 'the home of the brave':
instead of seeing the stranger as other, see him as brother.
We need leaders with values, ideals, and conviction,
not a chump who's heading straight to a conviction.
