Ode to the child snatchers

Ripped and torn from parents arms Causing psychological long term harm Children being left traumatized In detention centers full of cages Various kids of various ages Susceptible now to sexual and mental abuse Who in hell was it it that gave you This right to use these innocent kids as political tools Guess it's nothing new in truth You only have to watch the news To see the atrocities you do To kids in Syria with that war and death Have you no compassion or morals left That you can destroy kids in this way And why are people not taking too the streets Why are they not doing something Children are disappearing and dying Or put in cages hysterically crying The politics of all of this is not theirs Where are the child authorities that claim to care This is a human rights tragedy A crime against humanity Why is no one being held to account Brought to justice or being sent down This age in which we live seems oblivious too The suffering of these kids that are all over the news Sanitised it seems now to be But you can't say you never knew They say these detention centers are like holiday camps The Nazis claimed the same with concentration camps This policy is coming to you direct from 'Mein Kampf' Like the film of 'The boy in striped pyjamas' Same fascist rules and traits Same policies in the world today What more is it going to take For people to bring about a change Don't wait for governments to fix it Because as it stands its working in their best interests As a humanity we will be judged Buy how much we leave others to suffer And on our lack of action, compassion and trust.

You are so right about this, Faux. Not only in these places but right in people's own homes, there is so much abuse and harm done to our children today. Where will it all end? This leaves an impact.

Powerful pen, Faux... Point is, you're right, 100% … and this has been going on 'forever' really. I have heard hair-raising tales from those who were separated at Ellis Island when entering the USA over 100 years ago … Well-expressed with just the right blend of eloquence and outrage! Bravo! ~ Gershon (soupmail)

Powerfully penned poem Faucroft it beggars belief that it has ever had to be written in the first place.:-(:-(- I think even Ronald Dump's supporters have been appalled at the scenes witnessed in the media, such a disgusting state of affairs in our so called civilised society faux croft. :-( hugs Jan xx

Thank you for your support and thoughts and for reading. It's all very sad and abhorrent.
