Walls And Bridges

We need walls, you know.

Life without them is too Scary.

Bridges are fine in their place

But walls give things their form,

Providing an introduction,

Announcing to one and all:

“Good day, I’m Ralph, not Sam;

The U.S., not Mexico;

Shirt, not pants.

The bridge says:

‘I welcome you and you welcome me.’

The wall says:

‘To each his bloody own.”
