Looks like Donald Trump’s going to get his wall after all, but it won't be across the US-Mexico border. No, the wall’s going to be around his inUGHuration parade route and the White House. And it’s going to be a “Wall of Meat.”
We’re not making this up – you can read all about it HERE.
At first we assumed that the “Wall of Meat” would be constructed of Trump Steaks, but no. Turns out it will be made up by a chain-saw artist and 5,000 of his biker friends (so we suspect that the wall will be all white meat).
We imagine that Mr. Cox, the biker-founder of the pro-Trump group organizing the “Wall of Meat,” got the idea from a poem by Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson’s third cousin, twice removed – at her request). Dickinson was quite a visionary, and he wrote about a “Wall of Meat” in the late-1800s in his poem “Go not too near the House of White” (below on the left). His poem also inspired third cousin Emily to pen her poem “Go not too neat a House of Rose” (below on the right).
Mr. Cox asked Lady Gaga to participate in the "Wall of Meat," but like every other A-list celebrity, she declined. Cox and the bikers also approached Meatloaf, but like every other B-list (and C-list, D-list, and E-list) celebrity, he declined as well.

By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
Go not too near the House of White –
Intimidation’s sure to Greet
Your demonstration – for Ado
Alarms its Wall of Meat –
Nor try to yell or Speechify
Nor climb a Fence in Protest,
The new security on bikes
Is just ensuring no dissent.
By Emily Dickinson:
Go not too near a House of Rose –
The depredation of a Breeze –
Or inundation of a Dew
Alarms its walls away –
Nor try to tie the Butterfly,
Nor climb the Bars of Ecstasy,
In insecurity to lie
Is Joy's insuring quality.
