Walls & Guns

wall-02

 

There is more smoke than fire

in this dystopia

Less fact than fiction

in the corridors of power

These are the days of empty rhetoric

Of pointing fingers

and wagging tongues

This is not the age of reason

this is a time of walls and guns.

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.
