The Border Wall

The border wall
The border wall
Paint it white
and watch them crawl
to the border wall.

25 billion to defend our shores
From housepainters
And gardeners
And the poor
Refugees from the south
We’ll bear any burden
To keep them out.
With a border wall.

Children crying in a cage
mothers lost and the world dismayed
tries to remember what we stood for
when we freed the world from  Fascist chains
Let’s make America great again
And build a wall
sovereign we stand strong and tall
and hide the shame
of a border wall.

The border wall
The border wall
Paint it white
and watch them crawl
to the border wall.
