Mexican-American War Haiku

Annex swathes of land

Prior inhabitants don’t

Respect border. Weird.

Funny how that works, eh? Happy 172nd anniversary of Polk’s declaration of the Mexico, everyone!

I do take the view that if you, say, steal a barrel of apples from someone, that it’s poor form to pitch a fit because they swiped a couple of apples back. So my sense of outrage regarding Mexicans illegally crossing the border is infinitesimal.

If you liked the haiku, or would like to request one on a specific topic, please consider sharing the blog, or making a donation via Patreon or PayPal. Thanks kindly!
