The Wall

“I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will make Mexico pay for that wall.” – Donald J. Trump

The Xenophobe-in-Chief
without personal filters or boundaries,
insists on a geographical barrier
to keep out terrorists, rapists, drug dealers,
but mostly undocumented, desperate workers.

He vows to build a “beautiful” wall,
assures credulous Americans
it won’t cost them a cent,
Mexico will be happy
to pick up the tab.

His proposed budget
includes $18 billion
just to start construction.
The finished product could cost
three times more than
fantasy figures Candidate Crazy
was constantly quoting.

Once again, we’re the gullible,
ignorant electorate
who handed a con man
the keys to our nation,
signed a blank check
and are now on the hook
for stupidity’s exorbitant bill.

--Jennifer Lagier
