a man reads the news ~ tanka

a man reads the news
considers independence
questions its value
a country of open arms
building walls on its borders

This tanka is a response to
Frank Tassone’s #Haikai Challenge #92: Independence,
in which Frank discusses Independence Day in the United States and how it’s  seen under
a new light, considering the treatment given to immigrants at the southern border.
