An ode to the border wall

Yuma Sun - - OPINION -

Twas the month be­fore Christ­mas and all along the bor­ders,

The mil­i­tary was gath­er­ing, wait­ing for or­ders.

The Wall was in place with ex­cep­tional care

Fear­ing the in­trud­ers soon would be there.

We were all safe in our tiny tin tents.

Hop­ing our se­cu­rity was heaven sent.

Momma was quilt­ing day af­ter day

While dad was golf­ing his win­ter away.

Some neigh­bors were hid­ing in their lit­tle home box.

Mak­ing sure ev­ery­thing was put away and locked.

The aliens they did come, march­ing from afar.

Not one of them could af­ford a bus or a car.

The Wall, it held strong and puz­zled the masses.

So now they all sit on their fine lit­tle asses.

We must pray for an an­swer to help their sad plight,

So both sides of the Wall can be merry and bright.
