Lady Liberty

Lady Liberty,
come down
like Moses
from the mountain
and trade your torch and tablet
for a baby on your hip.
His tiny slip of a mama
left two dead kids
in Guatemala
a thousand miles behind her -
for this?

In cages and detention,
Lady Liberty,
can you see them,
beggars for asylum,
for the least that we can give -
the tired and huddled masses
need you now,
New Colossus;
come down
like Moses
and remind America
who she is.

Perfect. God knows we need reminding. When i think of what they have gone through to get here, hoping for a better life, to be detained and have their children taken away, it sure isnt the America i knew. So well said.

Maybe Lady Liberty can TRULY make America great again. The nimrod topped by cotton-candy has failed miserably. Over and over again.
