Sipping from a Common Cup
How our World Cup team unites our nation

"One nation under God" we say
but most the time we're not.
We argue about gays and guns
and legalizing pot.

But don't you love how we unite
around our World Cup dreams?
We are "united states" this month
while cheering on our team!

It feels quite good when we draw close
and act as though we're one.
To show allegiance to a cause
is actually quite fun.

Divided states of blue and red
define us when we vote.
But when we're cheering-on our team,
we're all in the same boat.
