Everyone's leaving

Rock dwelling creatures
hiding in the cracks
afraid of the light
tide pools and toad stools
frogs learning spanish
getting ready to cross
at the Rio Grande
seems these days
everyone wants
to leave this land
ugly girls with beauty masks
wink at border guards
trying to avoid
the questions they ask
seems everyone wants
to leave this place
even the warmongers
leading the arms race
