Time in the U.S.

If I recall, far far away
The future was shining on everywhere
Beneath the beautiful blue sky
We were just a little afraid
At the same time that the United States was blocking the border arteries,
its trade policies were only increasing the pressure on Mexicans to leave their country
No one was actually deterred, but more people died.
They speak English. At night they sit around
the kitchen table, laugh with one another.
Out of sight. Out of mind. Again, for a time.
What difference does it make if Minutemen have camped out in lawn chairs on the other side?
