Pause for Thought

Read 153 Times
Refugees
(Read this from top to bottom, then from bottom to top)

They have no need of our help
So don't 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
Layabout and loungers
With bombs up their sleeves
Cut throats and thieves
They are not
Welcome here
We should make them
Go back 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 OK to say
These people are just like us
A place should only belong to those who are born here
Do not be so stupid as to think that
The world can be looked at another way
