MEXICO’S BORDER

MEXICO’S BORDER

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

For couples of times did I visit the famed San Diego

Big city of California that borders the tequila country d’Mejico

Twas on the early visit in November 2000

On a five-week break to California via Montclaire

Motored to San Diego to visit a Jew pal of Dad

Who was married to a Filipina of sturdy mien

Then from the Diego home we motored to border d’Mejico

To glance at the other side and document a sociography

Arriving thus on the border we immediately eco-scanned

Both sides to reckon with structures and shapes

Took snapshots of with the border patrol guards

And the stone tablet on the California side

Appalled I was at the sight of 3rd world ignominy

On the Mexican side of Baja California d’tequila

Cultural development surely mark differences between

Two countries that are allies in trade & politics

No wonder that Mexicans keep on migrating across

To America for greener pastures and opportunities gained

[Philippines, 12 July 2011]
