Papa’s worrisome wall

Papa wants to build a wall
To keep us and our neighbor apart;
How then do we relate with them
As we used to do?
Are we not to love our neighbor?
And was God a fool to put us together?
Let us rather build what will bridge
The gap between our two homes;
Build no wall;
Build a bridge
That will bring us closer;
To live like family,
To love like family;
And to work hand in hand,
If we want to live in peace.
Papa’s worrisome wall
Shall not be built.
