Quality Control At The Young American Factory

We're red, white, and graying fast,
baby booming past
any balance
of labor and leisure.
We need her

and her and her and him
to come here -
come in -
work-
spend-
but we send them back;

the blend's too brown,
too close to black,
down at the border.

It is not easy to look at the other face of the coin, particularly if you love your country.
Brava!

Can't have that. Next thing you know, they'll want free "stuff", like dignity, a living wage, and hope. Who do they think they are?

I say very clever & witty knowing such are thorny issues at your side of the border ~

you're a magician in reverse - telling truths when the crowd only seems to want what's not real ~
