Grifter went . . . I’m stuck.
Beto there too . . . nope, I’m stuck.
El Paso . . . I’m fried.
I promise this is temporary. The Orange Barker’s carnival in El Paso just stymied me so that I am at a loss for words.
I am going to let others do the speaking for me on this Fri-ku.
Oh my gosh, I have a visitor who has something to add to help me out. It is the wise Memphis Earlene who has no patience for fools. I need to tread lightly. She is a great blues legend. Her take on this:
Drinking whiskey for breakfast feeling dazed and confused.
Woke up this morning with the Border Wall Blues.
Pockets full of empty. Head full of network news.
That jackass in the White House wants his Border Wall Blues.
Check her website at www.memphisearlene.com. She often shares her wisdom with Judith Podell, author of BLUES FOR BEGINNERS: STORIES AND OBSESSIONS, available as e-book on Amazon.
Music always soothes my soul. I thought it appropriate to include El Paso by Marty Robbins. Oops it is the story of a cowboy in love with a Mexican woman. Damn. Sometimes it just happens, I guess.
Feel walls closing in?
Low energy. Adderall?
Get Wall done! You’re done.
Are you as fed up with the Wall BS as I am? Need to warn you—this Fri-ku narrative is all over the place. Appropriate, I guess, since the Grifter has been all over the place with the Wall.
As of today, he has been consistent about wanting a border wall. So many inconsistencies about the details.
Rather than reiterate facts you know or that others have captured so well, I suggest reading the excellent A quick history of Trump’s evolving justifications for a border wall (Politico 1/8/2019 Rebecca Morin) . Click HERE
Here are my current thoughts:
I warned you. All over the place on this. One more thing. I feel such sympathy for those who have been affected by Trump's idiotic campaign promise. The asylum seekers, the furloughed workers, those affected by the domino effect of furloughed workers. May Grifter get a wall. Just let it be a jail cell. He is the national emergency.
