Look over the wall

    Look over the wall.
    What do you see?
A child fleeing war
    or a threat to our country?

    Women invading,
    setting down roots,
or daughters escaping
rape and abuse?

    Men whose attire
    would suit the dark ages
or sons whose desire
is fair work for fair wages?

    Terrorists, murderers,
    muggers and migrants?
    ‘Difference’,
    immigrants,
    forces of evil?

Or refugees, emigres,
friends without homes?
One of us,
humans,
penniless people?
