Illegal Aliens

28 Feb

Illegal aliens occupation,

terrorists slaughtering nations.

Invasion not by swimming rivers,

walking across desert sand,

or climbing walls and fences.

They arrived in ships,

in the name of religious freedom.

Aggregate disregard for all others,

seeking personal gain, freedom, power.

Stealing from the outnumbered,

Stripping liberty and life

from a proud people.

An Eden gone forever.

Your gangs, your “armies”,

genocidal, larcenous.

Taking everything,

everything.

Illegal aliens

not to be denied,

just kept coming through

unrestraining borders.

Delivering plague, fear, death, shame.

Apathetic annihilators

of cultures, ways of life.

Shackled by poverty,

ignored by those

choosing to just look away.

Those who proudly and falsely

claim to be from them.

Banished now to POW camps

they call reservations.

To be forgotten into extinction.
