A Different Outcome in 1492

In fourteen ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. And on that same day, Chief Trump had a Vision. What he saw filled him with fear and anger. So he called together the people of land. The Chief shared his vision of the future:

 Most of us will die. The land will be destroyed. Water will be unsafe to drink; air clogged in smoke.

The people huddled together, shrinking from this future.

Is there nothing we can do? They asked.

Already, the white masts of three ships containing religious extremists could be seen on the horizon.

And Chief Trump responded,"Yes, but we must hurry. Our only way out is to build a wall."

"YES! YES! BUILD THE WALL! BUILD THE WALL!" the people cried.

And so, they built a wall.

In twenty sixteen, the wall can still be seen. And on that same day, the ancestors of Chief Trump looked around. They saw a land filled with indigenous people. Rich soil, safe water, clear skies. A beautiful country.

Yes, now I see why European Trump supporters want to build a wall. They are afraid of what our ancestors did when they took over this country, will happen to them.
