The world is not a true/false test,
A black and white version of life
With nary a shade of gray.
You may wish to go down the list of questions
And check your box –
Democrat or Republican,
Black or white,
Pro or con.
But there are no easy answers.
Instead, the world is an essay question
With many shades of gray,
Requiring thoughtful response
And careful editing,
Where one answer can make all the difference.
