The Mending Wall?

Everybody's talking and no one says a word
that's worth more than a turd,
the President's an idiot

and some of my fellow Americans are,too.
They're gonna build a fence in Texas
to keep out the illegal aliens

but guess who's gonna build it
and guess which side
they're gonna build it from.

Nobody told us there be days like this,
nobody had to tell us
but when you're brown you know what's coming down.

They're gonna build a fence in Texas
so I guess old man Robert Frost was right after all---
good fences do make good neighbors.

Yeah, it's hell being brown, isn't it?

And it's hell getting called a racist when you aren't, either.

Try this on for size.
