For A Poor Refugee

Good people imprisoned though not guilty of any crime
Such as refugees in detention centers like prisoners serving time
People who are not criminals though from criminals of war they did flee
How tough life must be for a poor refugee
To want a safer and a better life is not breaking any law
But to many people with power compassion is a human flaw
They believe that boat asylum seekers in their home Countries should have stayed
And any sympathy for them ought not to be displayed
To escape persecution they have fled their homeland
This is something that should not be hard to understand
Like the weeds of the garden that stifle every flower
Their dreams of a safer and a better future are crushed by cruel people with power
That life is tough for many who could disagree
And none do know it tougher than a poor refugee.
