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?
