By Dolly Gee
Donald Trump is just as clear as can be
Immigrant children must be caged, not free!
Trump wants them all whipped
Before they are shipped 
But "not on my watch" ruled Judge Dolly Gee!...

Trump Really Recalcitrant
Trump Really Recalcitrant

Not pertaining to Trump is irrelevant;
He was mad and became recalcitrant,
Brain oblique;
Likes to leak,
And ignores  if you are an immigrant.

Immigrant bodies pile up in Texas

After building a wall from ‘freedom’ glass

Green card for hard labour

Slave on dearest neighbour

Watch your companions expire en masse

Track on track and steel on steel; built America’s railroads. Immigrant sweat, in the noonday sun, hammered out miles of track. The masterpiece of human ingenuity forever rolls.

I always remember that I am an immigrant
I believe you are always innocent
Life is sometimes boring, sometimes magnificent
Are you thinking everything is imminent

Between Time
Caught in the time between eternity
and non existent.
I live in imagination's tender grasp.
An illegal immigrant.
I don't belong here in this bliss.
I don't deserve a feeling like this.
Impulsively I glance down . . .
The fire 
Is real....

ZONE FOUR
piri piri and piss
stain the paper baldachins
of everyday-value men

their hands grow
out of London planes
to pray; or serve curry

and whether or not
they lose their bets
a party takes place

friends --
whom I miss
when I am gone...

little you know an immigrant 
coming at age twenty fully educated at not a cost to you
learn the language and save mount of dollars to clean your floors
must be a reason they came to to your country of amendments
not written in stone if only you could see  the suffering

A grey maharajah speaks





At five of the clock an immigrant species from the Raj speaks,

"woort tooo - teee tau", a grey maharajah on our hopper window 

waking us up to another sunny, hot English summer's day we dream about

or have nightmares as is our want; remembering or misremembering our childhoods.

anthem
let freedom ring in every thought
for love of country and what it costs
waving strong, red, white and blue
in every heart, the colors wave true

bring me your tired, your hungry, your meek
every immigrant who asylum seeks
from coast to coast this anthem sings
in every heart let freedom ring...

Due Process
The murder get due process
The rapist get due process
The predator get due process
But an illegal immigrant cannot 
get due process
Where is the justice

Have we become a
Nation of lawless
People
God forbid

Lord I am a descendents
of force immigrants
Slaves
Help the people who "want" to be here...

just bought three bananas from the corner bodega for a dollar
to send on his way the sweat of a kitchen the immigrant

ducks from hudson almost canada we know our plucks
and the foie gras a science

why me as mostly do not eat meat to over feed the liver
but a kidney I will enjoy with cream and morels.

Despair Not Fair and Everywhere
Despair Not Fair and Everywhere


Disruption and disobedience were in despair;
Wondering why God did not appear to be fair;
Poorly painted,
And tainted;
Misery and suffering would exist everywhere.

Jim Horn

Here we are just after Christmas and a poor
immigrant child died. Wonder what will be 
next.

Tenacious Bonds
   TENACIOUS BONDS
Stashed for years in between pages now yellow
Hordes of dry brown leaves slithered out, mellow

Filling air with balmy scent and familiar rustle
of distant shores, threw immigrant couple in disarray
A call from yonder rooted in lands faraway

Immigrant, friend, poet, dreamer
Native son of Solano, Nueva Vizcaya
Lover of haiku, senryu and chicken barbecue

Much time two women had spent;
Problems possessed by immigrant;
Good looking lasses,
In aviator glasses,
And they never had to live in a tent.

hey immigrant
punctured, onward continue to quit decision's to make second guessing a moment ,
wit a wound wide opened by sliding the cold shoulder's lap first but enlightened by composure, intellect wasted misuse's of time the truth withheld to prove ill state vs. denial of a mans prime singled too proud deviating the lost to worship no man who lives under trial.

The Immigrant
The Immigrant


Seeking solace. 
Seeking a home.

The immigrant finds, 

rotten prejudice. 
Fungal anger. 

The immigrant, 

alone, hoping for, 

A solitary chance. 

To belong. 

The immigrant, 
alone, always, 

an outside entity. 
Eternal outcast. 

A viral threat. 
A reeking odour. 


The immigrant, 

ever alone, 
and alone knowing, 
that no place exists, 
but that lost home.

America's Shame
Thousands of children kidnapped by Trump
Suffered abuse to more than their rump
According to some
Trump's immigrant mum
Should have flushed Donald Trump down a sump*

*Newspaper today reports Trump admits "thousands"
of children will NOT be re-united with their parents 
 - after suffering months of physical and mental abuse - 
"because it would be harmful to the children"!...

You came here
Wishing on a wish
Nothing more


Now you know
Wishes lack form
Something lost


Still you wish
Upon a dream
Lost soul here


I see you
Struggle to live
I grief


You see me
Failing to give
Lost brief


Words fail fast
No much to say
Both gone


Here's the tip
Immigrant trip
Sip drips

A Mermaid's Tale
Trump's newly-appointed EPA Chief
Found himself buried in EPA grief

To prove he was no party-pooper
He likened Trump to a Giant Grouper

Swimming against an almighty current
Where even the sharks were no deterrent

"Forget the  'U' and immigrant no-hoper!
I'll rename that fish, "The Slippery Groper"!

Well,  Congress agreed to just let it pass
That's God's honest truth, you bet your wrasse!...
