You and the Refugees

You call us “migrants” instead of refugees
You call us “swarms” as if we are diseased
You demean and rage at us, as we drown and die
You pretend not to hear, as our terrified children cry

You bombed our countries and reduced them to rubble
You well dressed war criminals, created all this trouble
You killed our children with hellfire missiles
You called this “bringing democracy,” and then you smiled

You caused us to flee from the bloody wars you created
You are damned hypocrites, and now you are feted
You made massive profits from death and destruction
You made whole communities unable to function

You refuse us entry into some of your countries
You spray us with tear gas and deny us sanctuary
You say you will “help us” after destroying our lives
You are evil incarnate, pretending to empathize

You are sanctimonious villains who should be in jail
You are fortunately fortunate that justice has failed
You are the creators of today’s hell upon earth
You are the descendants who made Jesus thirst

You try to get elected on the backs of our misery
You are all hypocrites and dealers in atrocities
You only care, about more and more power
You are a disgusting evil, and a bloody shower

You rained your hellish bombs down from the sky
You even have fly pasts as our children die
You are the maniacal murderers of society today
You are a curse on the world, that’s all I have to say
