The Melting Pot
American immigration is a very great thing:
New life, new job, new hope waiting,
People come from all over the place.
People come of all different race.
Every country they come from, for all different reasons:
Poverty, war, drought, and famine, too;
That is just to name a few.

New houses, new jobs, new schools, new lives.
On ship, on plane, on foot they come
Deserting their friends, family, and the life they knew.
How scared they must feel, how desolate, too!
“What does my future bring?
