With Might Established: A plaque for the wall
As dark silhouettes touched by Midas glow;
with foundations set deep into the land.
Here across our sun-soaked, bound shall stand
A rusted wall with razor hair. Whose shade
is the shattered dream. And its name displayed
Peligro! It casts from a flat raised palm
reject shadows to guard suburban calm;
out across our boundary river's flow.
"Oh, huddled masses yearning to live free,"
From its shuttered mouth the wall engages
"Hark now, you living scars of human greed!
Corruption's spawn and conflict's wages!
Return this surging tide of frenzied need.
I block your path and turn gold doors to cages!"
