flesh

they come to the border
what can you do?
old men speak
into their glasses of scotch
old women tut-tut
the side show has its three rings

online donkeys asked to stomp
yes or no
the tide turns and lives
are not in the balance

only the question of freedom
the design of rights
the exploitation of law
because this continent has
up and down
over and under
how strong is your castle?

what is the hope?
give them shelter
give them infinity
not ours! we scream

yet laughed at Greece as she sank
and those were our wars
our middle-east
there is no treasure worth chaining the next tide…
no escaping duty
so look up and remember who you are

people in land of the free
….only because some men thought to make it so
