A question of value

They do dirty jobs without fuss And bring to our culture a plus We claim they're unfit And upon them some spit Yet illegals are better than us Author's note: It's ironic that the people who promote family values would deport the parents of US citizens (children born in the US to alien parents).

I love your title Duke, you just read a few of my poems, which lately i have not been on the Soup, just because i feel so neglected, there is a bunch and they write each others reviews. I enjoyed so much your reviews, they are so real and down to earth.I think i would like to know you better, and we will read and correspond together. If it is ok with you.Life in the US has become so difficult to find friends. Terry xo

Sure thing Terry. You are just as valuable and have as much important to say as does anyone here. Certainly more than I! We'll try to laugh and keep on trucking!!

Hello, Duke, thank you for reading 6 of my poems. Ginkgo Biloba works for me :) But I take vitamins and drink warm lemon water with honey, turmeric, ginger for sore knee & chopped garlic too. You should check it out. :)

You are a very kind soul, Debby. We try to remain cogent and well as long as possible. Thanks for the suggestions.

I think the last sentence is a blanket statement that is not exactly true. But I agree with your general message here, Duke.

I understand your comment and the way you took what I said. Women and children are fleeing from horrible conditions. The current "invasion" is actually an exodus from slavery of sorts.
