The poem is about the overall topic of former president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln’s speech “A House Divided”, wherehein June 16, 1858, at the republican state convention debates about slavery in the US during the 1850s, andalso how the US is divided into anti- and pro-slavery states.
The mood and tone are set to be very thought-provoking and conscious about racial hatred.
There are several examples of poetic devices, that I have used deliberately to maintain the read-er’s attention, and to emphasize the topic in the poem.
Numerous times I have used extended metaphors. To show the comparison between two things that are essentially not a like.
