Illegal immigration should never be about illegals seeking a better life to be demonized
Rather it should be about the needs of the nation for skills and how best to deportations prioritize
Lofty goals we will never reach or solve with a border more like a sieve
Especially when an illegal commits a horrific crime making it so hard to forgive
An illegal alien, a woman Isabel Martinez killed her husband with a knife
Then four of her children she took each life
One very traumatized nine year old was stabbed but did not die
As we wonder how a mother could do this, will we ever know why?
At her arraignment she was smiling with a double thumbs up
One can only hope we get insight on what caused this violence to erupt
Were there warning signs she was about to snap and go berserk?
The mind is an uncharted zone where mortal dangers sometime lurk
