Dear Puerto Rico

Post by indar » Fri Aug 16, 2019 2:56 pm

We've been talking it over,
we're sorry we can't afford a new bicycle
for your birthday
but we think our exciting news
will make up for it:
we need to save our money
because we are going to give you
a new baby brother, isn't that exciting?
You will love him, he has glaciers,
you can watch them melt.
Then we'll build a playground
and a tower and call it Trumpland.

Get it's criticizing Trump, but don't fully grasp the baby brother metaphor.

Should "he has glaciers,
you can watch them melt."
be:

You can watch him [and his friends] melt all the glaciers.??
--> Just a suggestion  ;)
