We can all think
  differently

While instantaneously feeling
  the same

We can politically straddle the
  great divide

While below loving the canyons
  and plains

We can put all prejudice and
  opinion aside

When the outcome is cast
  zero-sum

And in those moments our greatness
  calls loudest and true

With the blood of a freedom
  —hard won
