Welcome to America

Welcome to America,
Land of endless opportunities,
With streets paved of gold,
A melting pot of nationalities,
Now that you have arrived,
We must admit to you one little thing,
Just a fib, but it is no big deal,
Our streets are not paved with gold,
See, it wasn’t really a lie,
Now fulfill your dreams,
Get a job as a lawyer,
Oh wait, you can’t, why not?
Never mind then, be a doctor,
We don’t accept foreign degrees?
Oh, I’m sorry,
Be my maid, do what immigrants do,
But try not to get caught up in reality,
You see, there are opportunities,
Just not for people like you.
