They have no need of our help
So do not tell me
These haggard faces could belong to you or me
Should life have dealt a different hand
We need to see them for who they really are
Chancers and scroungers
Layabouts and loungers
With bombs up their sleeves
Cut-throats and thieves
They are not
Welcome here
We should make them
Go back to where they came from
They cannot
Share our food
Share our homes
Share our countries
Instead let us
Build a wall to keep them out
It is not okay to say
These are people just like us
A place should only belong to those who are born there
Do not be so stupid to think that
The world can be looked at another way

(now read from bottom to top)

oooooo careful CailinDeas good luck with this one x
That's very clever.
Viewed from both sides......
Up seems very idealistic and abandoning of reality and common sense. Although the final line seems right.

Down puts things in an unreasonably harsh manner but ignoring the hostile reasons stated, the implied truth that a nation is sovereign and can't be Lady Bountiful, comes through clear enough.
Correction, I wrote hastily and thought the final line said they needed help. It was the final two lines.
We still need an edit facility.
The truth is somewhere in the middle.
are you going to credit the author, Cailin?

Whenever I see anything like this I ask this question. Would you foster a child if you thought it might be detrimental to your own children?
