A to Z Challenge – U is for Ulysses

“Leave the matter of religion to the family alter, the church and the private school, supported entirely of private contributions. Keep the church and state forever separate.”

Ulysses Grant

I chose this quote to show that at one time the lines were not so black and white on political parties. You would never hear a quote like this from a republican these days, but President Grant was a republican back in the 1800s. A time when the lines were a little more blurred and just maybe they worked towards some common goals for the people.

As Love

You and me

Have been together

For many years

But what we have

I would not classify as love

We have mutual respect

But few things in common

Some days are eerily quiet

When words are hard to find

And physically distant

Is a kind way to say

Where we are at

No romance

No lust

Very little communication

I would not classify this as love

We have become roommates
