Trump’s Defensive Wall

by Orel Protopopescu

“The House Intelligence Committee is planning to build a wall between Republican and Democratic Staff”—pbs.org

A wall’s going up
to make double sure
that a border, besieged,
may be safe and secure.

Well behind it, young aides
will toss truth in the dump
of Republican rule
to preserve, protect Trump.

Party honor forbids
an intelligent ray
shed its light on the troops
of the One they obey.
