DREAM ACT SASHAY

DREAM ACT SASHAY
 
Hopin’ to get a green card,
JJ studied so hard.
He was gettin’ all straight As.
He really made the grade.
 
But the Congress got sidetracked,
Wouldn’t pass that dang Dream Act,
 And JJ got real sad,
And just a little mad.
 
See his dad had come EWI,
In the Rio Grande he’d peed,
Waded right across,
Made Uncle Sam his boss.
 
Now JJ’s stopped his school,
Cleans out some rich man’s pool,
And dreams about someday
Writing Ivy League essays,
One day.
