in honor of past presidents...

we are all immigrants here
the world belongs to all of us
the world belongs to none of us
we are just along for the ride
until we pass on through to the other side
held in a temporary suspension of deportation
defining who is  worthy for asylum
based on money, military might and pigmentation
all in search of a better life
trying to escape evils on one shore
only to find it in another unfathomable form
upon arrival
re-inforcing our borders with barbed wire and red tape
to keep THEM out
while we infiltrate their homeland and rape them of their resources
leaving destruction, pollution and death behind
we are entitled to their oil, uranium and diamonds
while they aren't entitled to their very lives
or a safe place they can call home
