Adios Amigos

Statue-of-Liberty

They’re busing migrants to the border.

These huddled masses

draw their last free breath

beneath the statue of bigotry.

We’re building walls

and digging trenches.

Planting the seeds of our destruction

on our very own doorsteps.

We are as a people suicidal.

They say it’s written in the book.

That the signs are everywhere

if you care enough to look.

    1. Thank you Martin - I am indeed disturbed by recent events in the political sphere.
