Change in status brought alarm.
Production with prosperity,
Take a side,
Opposition ranks deride.
Alter while still keeping here?
Resolve without promoting hate.
Debate the hoped-for remedy.
Some protest and some rejoice.
Fix with tax?
Finance programs on whose backs?
Time now for some sane rehashing?
Some will pray,
Course will stay,
Most hope to resolve the fray.
May all be safe from hate’s alarm.
