Toward Insight
Jeffrey Lee Williams


We swam around the deep blue sea
Singing the gospel solemnly
We approached the port for which we land
Carrying heartache hand in hand

We’ve begged the senate to spare a dime
They said to ask for help is a crime
We’re pushed to the ocean to swim away
Hoping for compassionate land to stay

Found a whale as we swam the sea,
We climbed aboard, quick as can be.
But never the less our claim we press.
This whale will be our new address.
Our independence we now declare
And glorious freedom we all will share.

The problem that arises now
Is one that we cannot allow
People in boats,
Refugees on whatever floats,
They’ll steal our whale that we love so dear
They have no right! That much is clear.

We built a fence, we built a wall
They’re not the same as us at all
Not the right color, same as me,
A very different identity.
We have to protect our way of life
From these aliens and their strife

Suddenly the whale took a dive.
Not many of us left alive.
Them and us, can’t tell us apart,
We sound the same now, for a start.
Once we fought for our language like a drug
But all we can say now is “glug, glug, glug.”
