Refugees

By

Brian Bilston

 

They have no need of our help.

So do not tell me

these haggard faces could belong to you or me

Should life have dealt a different hand,

We need to see them for who they really are

chancers and scroungers

Lay-abouts and loungers,

with bombs up their sleeves,

cut-throats and thieves

They are not

welcome here.

We should make them

go back to where they came from.

They cannot

share our food

share our homes

share our countries.

Instead let us

build a wall to keep them out.

It is not okay to say

these are people just like us.

A place should only belong to those who are born there.

Do not be so stupid to think that

The world can be looked at another way.

(Now read from the bottom to the top)

“I believe we are here on earth to help others. What others believe they are here for I don’t know.”

 

Thank you to my good friend, Sherry Edensmith for sharing this.
