Sometime the more complicated a
problem is the simpler the solution.
That might be why no one has thought
of this before. So easy.
All it takes is a proclamation from
President Donald Trump proclaiming
Mexico as our 51st state.
(Considering its size it might be our
52nd and 53rd states as well.)
We’d no longer need to stock the
Rio with man-eating-sharks.
The wall would not have to be built
high as Heaven’s Gate or electrified
to please the Devil.
No more hole-in-the-wall for gangs
to crawl through.
No more light at the end of the tunnel
for drug smugglers.
No need for border crossing caravans
because they’d already be in the USA.
And our patriotic entrepreneurs won’t
be rushing to build their plants in Mexico.
Under U.S. law Mexican-Americans will
be entitled to our minimum wage.
No more cheap labor.
Their leader, Obardor, could run for
President giving the Donald a real
challenge for the job.
One problem, we would all have to learn
our new national language, Spanglish.
But as a bonus our new citizens will
move the wall down to their Southern
most border. And as Trump said it will be
paid for by Mexico.
