“Make America Great Again!”
So Donald John Trump touts in his campaign slogan of very loud note.
If I literally his word to take,
then I would surmise by “make”
that Mr. Trump has a plan,
(at times, I fear, a pogrom)
restoring her to former lofty station.
I wonder: What is
2 (of a mighty many) of his words
“We’ll build a wall and get Mexico to pay for it!”
(good luck with that!)
“I’m a very successful businessman. I’ll bring jobs back to our country!”
(though, I think, hardly those he’s shipped to other global economies!)
And, Mr. Trump, to date I’ve not heard you state
much more than glaring generalities,
thus, far less than thoughtful specificities;
leaving me to wonder about the America you will make great again.
more exclusive, bounded about, fenced within our primal, nativist sensibilities?
Or will we
more inclusive, alway opening out toward our most expansive possibilities?
Tell me, Mr. Trump, which America (for alway there have been at least these two)
do you propose,
do you purpose
again to make great?
