Build Trust Before a Wall

A message to President Trump

Please don’t hold your workers hostage.
Mr. Trump, they work for you.
And to live from day to day they need their pay.
Don’t deprive their spouse and children
from the basics they deserve.
You’re behaving like a brute to get your way.

You are like a playground bully
when you make unfair demands.
It ain’t right when you insist we play your game.
While a wall may have some merit,
what we need far more is trust.
Mr. Trump, make building trust your foremost aim.
