Not a Mexican in Sight

Not a Mexican in Sight

 

By Elton Camp



Alabama’s immigrant law has been upheld

So, in droves, Mexicans have been expelled



The governor is smiling and so highly elated

At the departure of those he’s intensely hated



“I have fulfilled the promise of my campaign

That illegal aliens I wouldn’t allow to remain.”



“Now the jobs those scums once used to do

Can be filled by our own Americans true.”



But now the fall crops lie rotting in the field

Few Americans are willing to pick its yield



There’s a big shortage of workers in the gin

For only the Mexicans knew how to begin



Chicken plants can no longer process fowl

Though for workers they’ve put out a howl



The housekeepers have now left our town

And replacements haven’t come around



For the many jobs that are very hard and hot

Not near enough to fill them have we now got



Though to the governor it is a welcome delight

Others suffer with not a Mexican now in sight
