A child discarded even by the sea.
tossed by waves on to the sand
abandoned from the dark deep grave.
What world is this that we do nothing
To comfort the migration of these people
of power and greed?
A child lying face down in the shallow waters
Like a piece of flotsam
discarded even by the sea.
Note: While this blog is not a political blog this image in the news was too powerful to ignore. “The boy is one of 11 Syrian refugees feared dead after they drowned trying to cross the Mediterranean on two boats bound for the Greek island of Kos.” (http://stopwar.org.uk/news/if-this-powerful-image-will-not-change-uk-attitudes-to-refugees-what-will)
