Children in cages
So hard to believe
What more do you need
To finally believe?

This just can’t be right 
So horrific…. so sad
How did this happen?
So awful…. so bad!

Compassion and love 
Replaced with greed
How can you stand there
And watch them bleed?

The horror, the fear
Looking for shelter
After all she’s been through
Can’t we reach out to help her?

Taking a child 
From a mother’s arms
Exchanged for a blanket
Made of foil to keep warm. 

How could this be?
The cruelty …. the hate
Is this how we make
America great?
