Updated on September 8, 2017

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

American Immigration and Border patrol

Hurricanes coming fast and people fleeing their homes

What is the difference in danger I ask?

Hurricane chasing people from their lands, for immigrants a similar task.

When the world stresses us out and danger arises

We go where we can be safe, where we can see brighter skies

The fear of not living shouldn't be a surprise

What if an entire nation had to flee to another country to preserve their lives

Would a wall be built to keep out the flies

Their Power trips and egos

Their Racism and Heroes

Pigheadedness has wrecked prosperity turning achievements to zeros

When danger faces us all, we will seek refuge in other places

Up goes the wall, well here comes the quake

Earth is fed up, pushing hurricanes, tornadoes and making the environment shake

Look at what the hurricane brought over the borders

No one could have predicted to find immigrants in these wind and waters

Even a few Americans may be, picked up and brought into the Caribbean sea.

You see, when people lives have been disrupted, by man or by nature

Compassion comes forward, the price of a human life has no wager

Hurricane or war, both bring destruction and devastation

African, White, Mexican or Muslim, will seek refuge in another nation
