Sonnet: Some Things NEVER Get Better
By Donald J. Trump 

The Democrats will probably submit
a Bill, being cute as always, which gives
everything away but gives NOTHING
to Border Security, namely the Wall.
You see, without the Wall there can be no
Border Security - the Tech “stuff” is just,
by comparison, meaningless bells & whistles...
Remember this. Throughout the ages some
things NEVER get better and NEVER change. You have
Walls and you have Wheels. It was ALWAYS
that way and it will ALWAYS be that way!
Please explain to the Democrats
that there can NEVER be a replacement
for a good old fashioned WALL!
I just like the fact that you can make it add up to 14 lines, many in pentameter. There's lots more to say, though, about the philosophy of it, of nothing beats a good old-fashioned wall for, um, holding a ceiling up? That's my favorite use for walls. Wheels, in contrast, do a lot of different stuff, like pottery, or supporting gears, in addition to the transportation thing.
