Welcome To Arizona - Poem by Jose Armando Guzman

Welcome to Arizona.
This is the land of privatized prisons;
paid for by your tax dollars.
We do not fund education.
Who will fill our prisons?
We have a quota to keep.
The uneducated are a necessity in Arizona.
We need to protect the southern border.
There is an invasion of children reaching
Our desert lands and we must
Place them in make shift concentration prison.
Prisons are good business.
Don’t you know?
Prisons are good for the economy.
Education is a poison that destroys the economy.
Let me tell you about those little children,
They are trying to over throw the government.
Those little boogers are a threat to our ‘Merican ways.
Here in Arizonawe ban books that are against the American way.
“Bless Me Ultima” is the Mexicans “Art of War”.
We have to pasteurize and homogenize all of your minds.
Our biggest investment is to the future and well being of Arizona.
Prisons are big business and there is a lot of meat on the bone.
A child that does not know how to read is a passive child.
We should not even teach them to count.
It’s a great business model.
It’s great economics.
Keep them ignorant and uneducated.
We will just keep building more prisons and raking in the cash.
In Arizona we have a great business model.
If you have deep pockets then by golly
we will have your best interests in mind.
