Immigrant

We welcomed you when our country was new, but that was long ago.

We needed you when you first arrived to build our railroads and work our mines.

And now we’re all here in a new century saying “We don’t want you!”…

But it’s only because we’ve forgotten that the only “true” natives of this U.S.of A. are the Native Americans!

I'm a philosopher, dreamer, poet, writer -- not necessarily in that order -- and I get to write it all down and share it with the world thanks to the Wonderful World Wide Web!
