It takes one shattering Trump Card
Hapless residents stranded in immigration queues,
Stripped of their dignity and rights
With one swaggering signature.
Green Card turns to Red.
Knees buckle, hearts thump, tears roll down frozen faces,
babes in arms oblivious of an uncertain future.
Protective parents plead for compassion and fair play.
Hoping it will stamp out isolation and hatred.
Cut to the ivory tower
where the high priest of discrimination and division
waves menacing fingers. It’s them and US.
Masked in the delusion that he can make
his empire eminent again.
Time to pray for a new passport of peace.
