This is a funny, nonsense poem for sure, Raffaelina. Your words flow well with good rhymes and a funny story. I would like the hear the response from Mexico--that would be funny, too. Thanks for sharing. Respectfully with Love, Jan

I think this is a good entry for the Funny Nonsense Poem contest.
Humpty Dumpty seems like the perfect nonsense source, especially when it comes to the wall.
Well done and good luck to you with the contest.
Sharon

This made me smile and we all know who this is about and I wonder if the wall has been built yet? In those circles they seem to speak a lot of nonsense, love Dolly x

    Thank you for your smile and your review. Very encouraging.
    Yes, the wall is partly built and is being extended day by day.

Barak Obama laughs at the wall and calls it unnecessary, yet when he built his house in Washington DC, he had a tall wall built around it. If walls don't work, why did he need one?

    Do birds fly? Who knows why Partisan statements are even made when they are so hypocritical?
    Thank you for your attention and feedback. I take it, you are for the wall.

I have to admit, I'm a never Trumper so I appreciate the humor and the message in this poem. I especially liked the last line. The picture you chose is a nice addition.

More refugees we've just let loose

    Ha Ha! That is very good. We know somehow or other, either by a trade deficit, or whatever? They will pay.
    Thank you for your attention to The Wall. Much appreciated..

Oh so true! Hope Humpty Trumpty falls and cracks his head. It is a hard one to crack, but what might ooze out is not any brain matter. Where in his brain is there any real matter.

Good luck in this contest. IMHO there are likely many FS members who will not think your post is even a bit humorous.

    Hi, I realize that. I'm in it for the humor. I am neutral, I like Trump so maybe you may not like that. However, I do like your review. Thank you so much for your feedback.

    I will not reject you as a person or poet, but I can disagree with your political choice. Some like chocolate ice cream, others reject it for only strawberry ice cream - and that makes for the difference in opinion in other matters too.

    Of course. That's why there are two parties.

This work has reached the exceptional level

I enjoyed the poem for the timely subject
the take on the nursery rhyme
would have liked it better if the last lines
flowed a little better but it was very good.
Also liked the oicture
