Oh I’d prefer a billionaire Kuwaiti

A Swede, a Dane, or better yet, Norwegian

To anyone from Africa or Haiti

Or any equatorial-ish region.

 

As long as we are having these discussions

Regarding who to let in through the doorway

I wouldn’t mind a few more Finns or Russians

Or people from a place like, maybe, Norway.

 

If we have to have more immigration

We need a wall against the raging hordes

While letting in more people from a nation

With reindeer and with lutefisk and fjords.

 

So you can keep your tired and your poorish

Your huddled masses don’t mean s*** to me.

Go ahead and call me crude or boorish

But I prefer blonde people who can ski.
