Donald Trump's New Colossus

Donald Trump's New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With angry people standing side to side from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, darkened gates of shame shall stand
 a once mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is now doused by those greedy voices
She’s now imprisoned, and her liberty’s gone
Once Mother of Exiles no longer forlorn
Glows a world-wide "hell no" her now blinded eyes look down
The closed off harbor that frames injustice’s plight
Keep to your lands, this country is no longer your flight
With tightening lips. “Give me only your rich, we don’t take no poor.
Those huddled masses we don’t need any more
Keep those brown and black babies on your own damn shore
Send these, only the opulent, those bubbling with riches
Only then will the blinded lady open America’s golden door.
