How Grand the Canyon

How purple the mountain‘s majesty

How deep the snow

How jake the Flake

How often the Phoenix

Risen from the ashes

How often the sheriff

Doles out pink underwear

How porous the border

How dense the politicos

How can the residents

Retreat indoors, inside gated oases

So close to heaven

So blind to wonder

So far from life.
