its all semantics

the wall
this 4 letter word is just a word but its holding up our whole country
i suggest both sides quit using this 4 letter word
lets call the wall what it really is all about
border security

so as the politicians on both sides of the aisle use the word wall
insert the word border security in your brain

we need a better system on our southern border
we need a wall
we dont need a wall
in your brain put in the word border security
we need border security
we dont need border security

so trump would say we need border security
so pelosi and crew would say we dont need border security
no they would have to say we need border security
they both are saying the same thing now

can you see how
it solves our problem

when i hear all this stuff about the wall and border security i always think of one thing
big bend national park

have you ever been there
two of the most awing places we have been are
the grand canyon
big bend national park

if you have ever been there to either of them
then you know how beautiful and awe inspiring both are

so i always think
what would big bend look like if a big old wall was built along the texas mexico border along big bend national park
it would be like doing something like that down the middle of the grand canyon or along its southern border

i as a former texan and lover of nature and a lover of big bend could not imagine a concrete wall  or any wall separating us from that beautiful rio grande canyon wall

we hiked up along the canyon walls watching rafters float by
yes it was easy to cross over in places
then where you gonna go
out into the desert to die

maybe they could ask the ranchers and the mayors and the us house of representatives from that area what they would want done to the big bend southern border
im sure they would all say
nothing leave it alone
the rio grande has been that border since when time was started hundreds of years ago
lets dont do that
put a wall down there

its ok to provide border security in that region
isnt that what we want all around our borders on all four sides

border security
the semantically correct words
