Poem: The Statue of Liberty Wept Today

A tear splashed down from Lady Liberties eyes

as Trump adviser Stephan Miller told outright lies

about immigration and what she stood for

claiming Lady Liberty was a political whore

The snake spun tall tales for the white house press

where they came from was anybody’s guess

Spin snake, spin, smiling slyly at his narration

Denying it’s a racist legislation

Coming from a White House limiting immigration

if you don’t speak English in Trump’s new nation

you aren’t going to get confirmation

to come to America.
