So Damn Human

by suleimanharuna


Sheer purgatory for doggone immigrants

The gravest yards are wet, cold and mean

Andaman and Mediterranean

 

From Burma to anywhere

To Europe from anywhere

 

Genocide, accident, mass suicide

 

Escape from trigger-happy climes

Does not guarantee a better, safer life

 

We watch and talk and mope

They freeze and starve, then weak and worn, they sink

We still watch, talk and mope. So damn human?
