And manipulation’s tool:
A cruel income.
Monthly Archives: March 2019
Persistent and pulsing: from annoying to overwhelming
Alternately sharp and sudden followed by all or none.
Intermittent, inexplicable, important, or inexorable:
Near eternally if not present
For $600, drug packets can fly
Over a wall and through the sky.
For the cost of 2 ladders, less ambitious can climb
Up and down (picked up by a car in no time).
For the cost of a shovel and 2-3 days,
They can risk a patrol and tunnel their way.
For 2 million dollars, engineers have designed
Longer-lasting tunnels that travel miles blind.
And still for drug-running, most work stays wall-free
With approach more direct through ports on the sea.
So as existing walls neither stop nor reveal
Do new walls stop, cost, slow, or conceal?
