Borders

Secure our borders!

Good fences make good neighbors.
Make it clean and strong
Our earth is colored in patches
Of the countries, its entities

Document every plant, animal, and person
Measure all the air, water, and breathing
Make everything invisible, visual
Experience life, cleanly divisible

Since we can't respect differences
We must make great walls
To decorate with peace doves
And free-for-alls;

Since we can't understand each other’s needs
We must enforce our language
In the name of collaboration
And reason;

Since we can't stop fighting each other
We must create better weapons
To stop the others from
Making more;

Since we can't cure our diseases
We must name name each one
And come up with new experiments
Procedures and drugs;

Since we can't educate our people
Who have these answers already
Let's vote against spending money
To teach them;

Secure our borders!

Good fences make good neighbors

My Neighbor's Toughy

It is sheer hyperbole
To call him so,
A creature much different 
From Van Winkle’s Wolf, 
Who would snarl at his own master.
Or the proverbial Marcus, 
Almost always sleepy.

Maybe a year old,
He is,
The softest canine 
I have ever come upon,
Of a creamy color,
Cherry-red nose,
And lips of the same shade—
Pleasing features, in short,
A cleanly creature
With a red collar that suggests
That he is my neighbor’s possession.

Anyway, always eager to please,
Even as I am easy to please:
His moan, his wag, 
His rock, and shake,
Even on the very first day
We met—
Love at first sight,
as it were.

But…the iron gate—
Always between him and me,
Strong, well-painted, accursed gate.
With of course gaps between the bars
For me to insert my fingers,
For him to sniff at them,
Grab them with his pearly teeth
Touch them with his tender paws.

But the iron gate—
That ironically reminds me
Of Frost's line:
Good fences make good neighbors!

--R. V., Ram
