So long, old pal, who stood by us through the longest winters. We remember your holler, your bravado, your cowboy dust, and despite the perceived bad will, we love you still. I know you didn't like giving or receiving a hug, but, we couldn't just stand there watching you bathe in your own sewer: you always thought your crooked home was far nicer than ours. In the end you mistook our concern for jealousy and hatred, and built your wall. But we were never as entitled as you, as you consumed your Chlorinated chicken and your cheese, and swiftly ate your way into the grave, trying all the way to make yourself, to keep yourself, once again, Great.
