It's Complicated

A border in crisis
families flee homeland
US asylum entices

Government takes a stand
"don't enter or go to jail"
crossing bares a brand

Parents without bail
children held in cages
zero tolerance will fail

They come for better wages
to escape tyranny
to rewrite life's pages

Humanity versus security
so many sacrifices
a complicated calamity
