Trump’s Wall, a shrine to himself.
Also a national distraction,
earning him the unofficial title,
“The President Who Treated the Nation Like A Contractor.”
Creating and changing budgets, ever flexible deadlines
and an overload of unfinished projects.
Then behold! A miracle! A financial miracle!!!

Yesterday’s Wall replaced by Detention Centers!
The drought ended with the sudden emergence
of new streams of income in a country
where many suffer from financial drought.
Behold! Detention centers became new money makers
for the chosen few! And maybe its not too late
to market the Wall as a tourist attraction!
