Occupied Territory



American troops

Will be deployed

To occupy regions

Where people oppose

The president’s policies


And history traditionally

Supports that kind of action

As the United States

Loves to mobilize

The military


And, once again,

The Heartland is all for it


But this time,

The occupation will take pace

In the left-leaning

And blue voting


Of Spanish-speaking Americans

Living along

The southern border.






Ben White

Author of the books, Buddha Bastinado Blues and The Kill Gene, Ben White thought he was a poet, only to find out he is not a poet at all. He is a witness. What he writes is testimony.
