to Secure the Nation’s Border
(You can Call it the
or Citizen Border Care)
No weapons out, nothing illegal in.
No more evil coyotes trafficking in humans. No more desperate people, including children, treated in tortuous and barbaric fashion for money.
No Al-Qaeda dressed like Mexicans in, no aggrieved ex-spouses grabbing a kid and Heading South.
Harness the wind and solar energy there.
Establish a beautifying and history-preserving border; perhaps even a “Border Trail” that North Americans, South Americans, Canadians, Mexicans, Kansans, Cubans can explore in group expeditions. Establish small venues of pure space, areas of silence for Meditative Retreats. Telescopes. Star-watching Centers.
Instead of Ironman Competition, a Sand Man or Red Mud Rio Marathon.
Increase the number of entry points into the U.S. Promote short work or vacation excursions, allow folks to sign up for artistic jaunts between countries in a new hassle-free way through U.S. Welcome and Security Centers that connect the Border Trail.
Provide a system of care for any and all coming for political asylum. We will take your tired and poor.
Someone needs to. Put everyone to work assembling some packages for the folks in Pakistan; make sure there is a big red white and blue flag on every package to promote some good will. We need it.
Every unemployed carpenter, electrician, drywaller and ditch digger in the country is given work in building a connective structure of spaces, communications, byways, energy collectors and resource/research observation (like the Flint Hills Prairie Research centers in Manhattan Kansas).
Every unemployed police officer, security guard, nurse, counselor, aid worker, cafeteria worker, mural painter, waitress, horticulturist, planner, architect, blues singer, garden-maker.
Every family who wants to foster/partner in care for incoming families. Every scientist, every artist, every earnest, focused individual who wants to contribute to a new way.
Instead of a Wall, build a Border.
Turn a debit into a credit.
Shake out your brain and find some imaginative fun.
Like the Border of Flowers that accentuates your bushes.
Like the border of roses entwined delicately around the edges of the Good China.
(The border of cute puppies and kittens in your Vet’s waiting room.)
The beautiful borders of a good day: a kiss to begin and end, the sun’s hello and goodbye.
Take your billions and trillions in stimulus moneys and quit giving it to the greedy thieving fat connected cats.
Do something Crazy and unheard of.
