Immigrants: A View from The Bronx


Immigrants didn't red line the
Bronx,
Or burn its apartments
Or close its firehouses
Or shut down 
the great music programs
in Bronx schools
They came
to neighborhoods 
big money 
had given up on
And rented apartments
Opened stores
Built churches and Islamic Centers
And produced valedictorians
and new forms of music
which changed the world
Face it
When you attack 
immigrants
You plunge a knife
into the heart of the
Bronx.
