UNITED IN MERCY ~ DIVIDED IN FEAR
by John Yeo
Many official vessels from different navies
United in a common cause,
To stem a very sad tide.
A tidal wave of unfortunate people.
Fleeing their homelands
Through fear and persecution.
The United forces of the comfortable world,
Come together to save the lives
Of the refugees from oppression.
Crammed into unsafe vessels
Preyed on for profit by cheats and thieves.
Led to Death by drowning in cruel rough seas.
Divided by cause, culture and strife
The refugees from hard pressed lands
Arrive to find salvation in a makeshift camp.
To ask for asylum and begin a new life
The saviours argue the point,
Divided by the solution of overpopulation.
United in mercy and compassion.
They discuss going to war to stem the tide.
Of hopeless humanity on the cruel rough seas.
Divided by the morality of taking life
To save the lives of the unfortunate few.
The disunited, divided impossible solution.
Can this worldwide situation be really true?
