Poem: Unity?

Rubberband and rubberband, stretched out and worn.
Holding together too wide of opinions.  
Asking too much of the rubberband and rubberband.

Writing letters of disappointment, how could you? 
and how dare you? and God won't forgive!
The words repeated still ringing in my ears.

Tension, tension, spreading like a virus.
Powerful as corona and invisible until it is seen.
Unable to contain it and not taking responsibility.

Reading the aftermath of disapproval of decision making.
How dare you have your own voice!  
How dare you have your independence!

Rubberband, grab two to replace the old and broken.
Hold together what is leftover.
Still asking too much of the rubberband and rubberband.
