Boketto poem about Mexico's relationship with the United States
Once economic partners,
Mexico bought U.S. corn,
Mexican labors worked,
California
Farms picking oranges.

Is there a wall big enough
To separate family,
Break friendships?

Mexico contributes to
The U.S. economy,
And tacos spice up cuisine;
Walls separate
Families and friends.

Is there a wall big enough
To separate family,
Break friendships?
