Fractional Geometry

Republican presidential candidate
Donald Trump
has disappointed us all

yet again

as it was not he
who proposed the idea

for a border wall
between the US and Canada

as had seemed
his destiny to do

but rather

Republican presidential candidate
Scott Walker

who is graciously granting us
the opportunity

to xenophobically defend
twice as many American borders

and yet has lost
his once dominant position

in the straw polls
as Trump surges ahead
to be the frontrunner.

It's now up to Trump
to earn his first-place position

by promising
that nations of all lands

along America's infinite border
(according to fractal geometry)

foot the bill
for the border wall.
