Statue of Liberty’s poem gets a rewrite in the Trump era

New York Times

Here’s the updated version of the Statue of Liberty’s poem:

Buzz off you tired, you poor

You huddled masses yearning to breathe free

I don’t want you hanging ‘round here any more

Send these, the tempest-tost away from me

I douse my lamp and slam the golden door.

So much for being the light of the world.

Christopher Mitchell, Shell Beach
