The Boats Keep On Arriving

They come in boats the boats seem over crowded the poor unwanted from Lands far away
Only to be taken to detention centres and told that in this Land you cannot stay
To come this far they've sold all of their worldly possessions and for rejection a huge price they pay
But still the refugee boats coming southwards and more and more arriving every day.

The authorities do not make them feel welcome and the message given to them is quite clear
In our Country of your type far too many you must go back you are not welcome here
You have entered this Land of ours illegally and we will not
give sympathy to you
You have come here without i.d. or passports and you have jumped the immigration queue.

And every day the boats keep on arriving the crowded boats that bring the refugees
From Countries where human rights are non existent ravaged by wars, droughts, famines and disease
Lands bombed by foreign powers for selfish reasons the victims of man's inhumanity
Are coming south in boat loads in their thousands from war torn distant Lands beyond the sea.

The Government build new detention centres these people must
not be shown sympathy
We cannot be seen to be soft on such a matter they have entered our Land illegally
And though we supported those who bombed their Country for the displaced we are not obliged to care
And if they come here then we will deport them they can go back home or go to live elsewhere.

To Erin On The Death Of Her Pony

Erin will remember when others have forgot
Her lovely Shetland pony Camelot
Loose on the road and luck not on his side
Struck by a car near Belgrave Heights he died.

Life can be cruel it's always been that way
And for damage done to car poor Erin has to pay
She lost her pony that not bad enough
And huge damage bill makes it that much more tough.

A pony's just a pony some people might say
And they cost a lot to keep on corn and hay
But those who love horses don't look at cost
And when their equine die they grieve for friendship lost.

In cards her friends have sent their sympathy
They know how hard for her this has to be
And though sympathy won't recover her loss
Her friends are there for to help her bear her cross.

And long after all the others have forgot
Poor Erin will remember Camelot
Her little horse who died on the Roadway
Near Birdsland where his bigger horse friends stay.

Death Drops

Reports on reports by dailies;
Sympathies on sympathies;
Still cripples on cripples
And corpses on corpses.
On plantations, diabolic showers of Endosulfan.

Innocent raptures, its colour changed,
With the poison mixed.
Brains drained; heads swelled;
And like exclamation marks, tongues did
Jut out of the mouths.

Dribble drops of pesticide:
Legs and arms coiled,
And eyes, its wires melted.
Plantation village looked
Like a collided car.

Vultures in the sky hover;
Coffin makers get richest than ever;
Keep toys and cradles in tears fore ever;
Darkness so thick; and rays come out never.
Death falls in drops: where is the umbrella?

(Remembering the victims of Endosulfan pesticide in plantation villages of Kerala, India…)

The Cowardliest Of The Cowardly

Those who take hostages and behead them are the cowardliest of men
For their cause in this way sympathy they cannot hope to win
For themselves they sow the worst of foredoom if for their heinous crimes they do not pay
Then the bad karma they've sown for themselves will catch up with them one day.

They always wear balaclavas when they appear with their hostages on t v
For to hide from the World their facial identity
They lack in a sense of self worth and they lack in hope and faith
For to commit such crimes against humanity they must be consumed with hate.

I pity their unfortunate hostages who are innocent of any crime
Their hard luck to be in the wrong place and there at the wrong time
For days they agonize and they worry as to what might be their fate
Of the good condemned to suffer we hear so much of late.

They are the cowardliest of the cowardly of them is all that can be said
And their bodies only living the souls in them are dead
And though the evil in them was created by a war
They have taken fundimentalism that one step too far.

The cowardliest and the most callous of people just those and nothing more
But one day karma will catch up with them for to level up the score
Those who take life so cheaply cannot expect any sympathy
Since they commit the most heinous of crimes against humanity.
