Thinking of Current Events…

 

What Happens When You Build Walls

By Jesi Scott

 

They built a wall to keep the waves at bay,

And, for a time, it worked.

But all the glaciers melted increasing the seas

and the waves grew larger…

and the wall grew higher…

until it blocked out the sky

and they couldn’t see the stars anymore.

    Walls are like that, and, alas, people too.

        Many walls are built of those, and denial.
