MastoPrompt: Dissonance

The first work I associate with "dissonance" is "cognitive", which immediately jumps to politics. I'm not trying to take any sides in this once. You can disagree but be civil about it and don't demonize your opponent. The last line is because a distraction was needed and college football was on, particularly the USC/Stanford game, which #10 USC beat the crap out of Stanford as expected.

The US cannot mend the fence
Caused by cognitive dissonance
Confidence's what no side lacks
But none can agree on the facts
It turns some folks right insane
And splits families in twain
Some families have been able
To keep politics from the kitchen table
But to avoid another fight:
"Screw it, who's playing tonight?"
